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?

I just received 2 Z800 and 4 Z600 from HP. I'm pretty sure they can be labelled as workstation... Edit: It's even on the case: Z600 Workstation

My PC has a label on it which says Workstation as well, but it's really nothing more than a fancy PC.

It is a quad Opteron from a few years back.
