Given that this would the direction we take for the next 10 years for 
the QA community and based on you responce I have to ask how do you see 
the "traditional" desktop being relevant after all that time and if so 
used by whom as in which target users ( novice end users/power 
users/administrators )?

Here in Iceland ( and I know that have started doing the same in Denmark 
which means they are doing in other places in the world ) they are 
deploying tablets in schools not pc, which means the next generation of 
tinkeres will be doing so on tablet or the evolution of tablets at that 

They are handing out tablets with news paper subscriptions so slowly the 
tablet is replacing the traditional pc as well as laptops for the novice 
end users as well ( and pc are already starting to collect dust here ), 
light portable with mobile network connectivity and is at the same time 
running the same underlying OS as your mobile phone so no extra learning 
curve for the end user to study new OS.

So from my point of view we wont be gathering reports from novices end 
users in 10 years time.
