Features, Office eWeek's Debra Donston has penned down five ways the end user desktop in enterprises will look different in five years. While some of her ideas and predictions make a low of sense, there are a few things which are slightly debatable. Mostly, the reliance on virtualisation and web applications.

5 years is not a long time...

5 years is not a terribly long time in the history of operating systems. 5 years ago we had Windows XP, Mac OS X, good Linux distributions, Windows Server 2003... Does that picture sound familiar?
10 years ago things were a lot different than now.
Thus we should try and imagine how things will be in 10 years time. Surely in terms of hardware we could have a tremendous computing power available to everybody.
The one OS feature I'd like to see is decent voice recognition. In 10 years time we should be able to get rid of mouse and keyboard if we wanted to.
