I think what you said is true. I personaly believe Windows 8 will also cater to the desktop crowd and the power user for now. But the fact that tablets are coming whether we want them or not, they are comming in a big way to the masses. The consumer will buy them if they can replace the notebook. Can life in the buisness world live without the keyboard, NOt YET. So tablets that dont have good keyboard support through bluetooth or docking station wont do it for now. Imagine a tablet with voice regognition? Me too. Its comming. Just imagine your bluetooth headset like a Cellphone headset, and the world of typing as we know it is gone. Work stations will not be the minority though in the buisness role. We still must enter all that data. I cant ever see data entry with speach, to slow. They will have their place and niche. Will they make wireless monitors with their own graphics cards onboard? Talk about multi monitors. That might be stretching it, for now.Theres no doubt about it, if they can make tablets powerfull enough, its going to happen. Will it take a few years? Yes, so we are still safe for the next 10 years. Will windows 8 just be a mainly mobile OS? No as usaul Microsoft puts to many apples into the cart at once. Instead of making a great notebeook/tablet OS with great touch screen interface and lite footprint, they will make it a one size fits everything with not enough of what we want for any one thing. I personaly like to have my running shoes and a great pair of dress shoes also.
