Editorial A few years ago I wrote on OSNews several articles (1,2) about workstations. After three years I had to stop, because there were no workstations left on the market, they became legacy and were not sold any more. Now with the rise of mobile devices with touchscreen and wireless network connectivity virtually everywhere, the question becomes valid, what will happen with the desktop computers, are they still needed, or will they follow the workstations on their way to computer museums?

I have a Nokia N900, and could almost replace my computer with it. I can connect it to a TV for a larger screen, use Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, and it currently has 48gb of total space.

With Easy Debian installed, I have access to pretty much all of Debian Lenny.

Really the only thing that would be missing is a DVD burner, I don't think they make a bluetooth one.

But seriously though, why would I want to do that? Just think if your phone/pda/iPad/whatever was stolen and all your work taken?
