The end of the desktop PC?

Many articles have been written lately indicating that the desktop PC is reaching the end of it’s life.  To that I say nay.

A desktop PC is firmly entrenched in government and business; while it could “go away” we’re decades away from that happening… but what we might be seeing is that Microsoft Windows may be shifting away from it’s dominant role in the desktop PC.

In my opinion, the only thing that has kept Windows in it’s dominant role for so long is the wealth of software and the consistency (that’s a tough word to write when thinking of how inconsistent Windows really is) of software and operating system.

Time will certainly tell what will happen, and while tablets may be outselling desktops; there are a lot of desktops in the world already.
