New uses for old LCDs
Firt, you're overestimating the change. It will not be rapid, as touch screen is cumbersome, large monitors are as well, and there are other OS which can handily use the older monitors, like Linux and its many branches. I just bought two monitors to comply with Win8, and the two replaced will be attached to my DOS machines. Or, to my Win98 or other XP machines. I have to keep all those machines, as later changes in the OS or architecture, means that some vital programs on the older machine, can't 'upgrade'. So the machine remains quite useful. So it still needs a monitor, and flat panel monitors are essentially still VGA/SVGA. Only my old 286 with monocrome card, still needs a dedicated cRT, since I won't upgrade the card.
