Why the iPad will not demolish OS X...
So we all know that the iPad, and the tablet market as a whole (in theory), is big business right now. It's already virtually overtaken the PC market, with the notable exception of Apple, who've outperformed analysts expectations for years at this point. (Stop me if I'm repeating anything you've already heard). The iPad has immense growth potential right now, but I doubt that the traditional PC is going away any time soon.
The iPad is getting people who were never into computers before behind the idea of a personal computer. The iPad being a more personable and, arguably, a more comfortable device in every day use. My theory here is that as people grow more accustomed to the iPad's fairly limited UI, and will want to broaden their horizons, looking for something a little more flexible, full-featured and polished. And this is where 'desktop' operating systems will, and do, shine. They are the next step from the tablet. It's a little weird, given that the desktop came out about 30 years before the tablet (as we know it), and yet it feels like the perfect evolution of computing, now, in 2012. Barring some company releasing a truly full-featured, desktop class operating system on a tablet, I think we can probably stop calling for the death of the PC. Or at least stop beating around its proverbial bush.
