Depends on your definition of a PC. Is a PC a desktop?
I highly doubt the average person will be using a desktop computer in 10
years, or even 5. At least not outside of the office. I'd be interested
to see how many are using a desktop at home today.
But if you define it as an X86 machine, or a X64 machine, regardless of
form factor, then it will probably be a lot longer.
I mean, let me put it this way - is a Microsoft Surface Pro a "PC"? What
about the XP phone from a few years back? If a smartphone runs on an Intel
Atom chip - is it a smartphone or a PC?
