I’m not a big fan of the desktop, but there’s people who’d prefer them to laptops, strangely. Now sometime back N-computing was quite a buzzword in Nairobi. One computer and various screens and you have a whole workstation.
NComputing is a desktop virtualization company that manufactures hardware and software to create virtual desktops which enable multiple users to simultaneously share a single operating system instance. - Wikipedia
I thought that by now this would be the main standard for offices. But still, where people have their own workstations we have budget HP laptops owning the space.
