Editorial The PC is dead. Rising numbers of mobile, lightweight, cloud-centric devices don’t merely represent a change in form factor. Rather, we’re seeing an unprecedented shift of power from end users and software developers on the one hand, to operating system vendors on the other--and even those who keep their PCs are being swept along. This is a little for the better, and much for the worse.

Because these tablets are so easy to use and have less maintenance overhead. First the consumers are shifting to these devices, then workers get optimized interfaces for these devices. All there is left are software developers. Now that everyone is divided, corporations can start charging for getting access to these "professional" devices. PCs are cheap because of the mass production. Welcome to the future !
