How many times have I heard Windows is dying? I am 69.

Now notebooks use same software as desktops, so they should be PCs too, I suppose? Notebooks and tablets will cannibalize each other for a while, with the appearance of touchscreen ultrabooks and android tablets.

I guess I surprised myself, not to get stuck on PC's, to their real keyboards and larger screens. But actually I had no choice, desktops were already disappearing at last and current workplace.

PCs will be the center of office for many years Ipad is just a toy playing games and listening music,the most things that I did on the smartphone is listening musics, watching TV shows and playing games. It cost me so much money to buy.Battery management of smartphone or tablet is critical thing. Battery lasts for about 8 hours for doing noting or just about 4 hours or less for watching vedios and playing games.

As I see it, my families future consumer-owned box with storage is a NAS box attached to a wirless router, with the capability to stream media, not a PC. Maybe we'll own one laptop with a relatively small SSD complimented by a few tablets. This is in contrast to the three PCs that we own currently.

I couldn't think how to specify better at the time, but now I'm thinking Asiatic fonts. :)

Well, he seems to be ignoring a large segment of the market. I don;t think we'll see the end of the consumer-owned box with storage. On the contrary, I think we'll see a stable number out there. I do see a vast reduction of market penetration for Microsoft. That's a long time overdue. They can't continue to foist their buggy stuff on this market. People are tired of it. We will see more market acceptance for various flavors of Linux. Certainly many industrial customers have gone that way, and that slide is just beginning. Embedded? Microsoft is late to that party as well. This is a company that does not deserve to have the market share that they do right now. The market is only correcting. PCs may look a little different in years to come, but the basic plan will endure. That's because the concept of a PC is a great idea. Maybe we don't want software as a service after all. :)

Should be pointed out many non-English users prefer virtual keyboards or scratchpads, to more flexibly suit selecting or direct writing of characters.
