Are desktops going extinct?

Is the computer – the desktop – that we have known for so many decades, going to go the way of the dodo, and be extinct?  With even Microsoft coming out with an Operating System that is built for touchscreen effects, do we have the technical world shifting its base to the tablet and interactive screen?

Here is an interesting discussion that Tom Ashbrook, from OnPoint Radio, by FAR my favorite radio interview anchor EVER – has with the following experts:

Frank Gillette, vice president of Forrester Research.

Christina Bonnington, staff writer for Wired Digital’s blog “Gadget Lab”.

Hiawatha Bray, tech reporter for the Boston Globe.

Enjoy and learn.  And do share your thoughts on what you think of the future of PC?
