The desktop will be a legacy application... When I can write code on a tablet, type up documents on a tablet, touch up photos on a tablet, and print and scan from a tablet. Using my choice of installed applications, as opposed to this cloud crap that vanishes with your internet connection. And on my choice of operating system, with my choice of interface, and preferably with my choice of ISP.

Until then, long live the desktop.

P.S. How the hell can anyone type properly on an on-screen keyboard with no tactile feedback?
