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?

What he said. The only way you're going to take my desktop away from me is from my cold, dead hands. Mobile devices may be good for making phone calls and web browsing/media consumption while on the go, but for those of us who use computers to get real work done, the desktop still reigns supreme, and probably always will.

How many people use computers to do real work? I've noticed that most people who have computers just mess around on facebook and play flash games. Given a few years they might not be buying a desktop. Then it will get harder for you to buy a desktop too.

Practically every single white-collar worker?
