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?

Did weak, slow bi-pedal humans made powerful, fast four legged Lions/Tigers extinct?

In an evolution some features get added and some are lost. Extinction of a species/device is dependent on which features are beneficial for survival in a given environment.

Example: An Andriod phone with google voice is better than any voice recognition software running on a workstation even though workstation has higher performance.

Current cloud based environment is very different from good old days of workstations.
