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?

For serious work I use my desktop. I do plan to buy a netbook. But to say the desktop would become irrelevant in the near future is too soon. However as technology advances we never know what the future holds. We shall live in a more connected world in the future, how we connect and do things may probably be through other medium none specific to the desktop. The desktop shall evolve and most probably become transparent to the users, focus is more on the task at hand not what machine the task is to be achieved on. Makes sense?
