Death of the Desktop Operating System: A Glimpse into The Future

The Death of the Desktop Operating System is something you might hear geeks whispering about in corners, arguing frantically over the benefits of a streamlined, cloud-based, iPhonesque system versus the power and capabilities of the clunky-yet-hearty desktop. It’s chatter on forums and other social media. It’s even been the subject of a whole lot of blog posts in the past year (Meta much?).
