Re: Desktop PCs will be around for long time yet

Almost everyone here has a laptop which connects to a screen or two. It's only data scientists who now use a desktop (workstation really) in addition to their laptop. As the likes of Jupyter and RStudio are advancing I can do a huge amount on my laptop in a web browser with the heavy compute done elsewhere now. If it wasn't for doing the odd bit of image processing in GUI-driven tools then I could lose the Linux workstation all together.
