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?

PC gaming gets the shaft these days and everyone knows it.

There's too many good games on consoles to be a pc elitist. A game like Red Dead Redemption would run great on a pc but that isn't an option. You can stick with your silly framerate elitism but I'll be having fun roaming the western plains on a 52" plamsa. The last thing I'll be thinking about is pc gaming.

I used to be a dedicated pc gamer but have moved on and in fact have grown to love my little box with the green lights. I'm not going to stick with the pc so I can play the wait and see game with developers. Wait and see if they port to the pc and sometimes wait even more since the pc port is often delayed. Oh and now we have single player pc games coming that require a constant net connection. But the pc can draw polygons faster! WHOOHOO!!
