Generalizing always boils up the emotions.
Debra makes a lot of points, we will see in the corporate desktop in the future as these are all trends we already encounter.

Yes, there are applications, that absolutely make no sense as a browser-based application. Regarding efficiency, stability, user experience. Photoshop is a very good example with thousands more.

That's why these five trends are not mutually exclusive.

What the article lacks, on the other hand, is surprises.

And I bet, the next big thing on the corporate desktop is not among those five trends.
