quote: But back to the forward thinking. Mobile device processing power is advancing in leaps and bounds. By the time Windows 9 is in full swing, say ~4 years from now, it's unlikely the vast majority of users will even buy a PC anymore. You'll buy a dock for your phone or tablet that may have additional storage and processing power. Perhaps even an external GPU. You'll connect that to your monitor/TV/Keyboard and Mouse. When you're using that you'll have access to all your mobile apps via the new UI and access to all your legacy stuff with the old desktop.
