Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "The first computers were gigantic, filling rooms and requiring constant care and maintenance. [...] The computer stayed on the desk until the laptop computer, a smaller, more portable, but just as powerful machine, made it nearly obsolete. And then, the iPhone was released, followed shortly after by Android and the Palm WebOS, and the next step in computing was clear. What we did not immediately understand was if mobile computing was an accessory, or a replacement, for the traditional desktop machines." Jon-Buys at Ostatic believes the phone-becomes-computer paradigm is the next step.

I'm still waiting for the moment when Google will offer Nexus XX, which can be connected to monitor and ChromeOS starts. Everything is in the cloud, so you don't need much storage, processing power or memory. I would buy it immediately.

Of course I also would buy immediately an iPhone, which can run OSX on a large screen.
