The rate at which IT advances is exponential so cannot imagine what will be available to the consumer in 2026 or 27.Â If we look back 15 years and see how far the advances in technology have come, what will they be like in 10 years (exponential remember :-).Â What software will be needed to run those new fangled items? I imagine Windows will not be in its present form just like the machines of 15 years ago had muchÂ different software.Â
My present phone has 500 times the storage capacity of my first IBM compatible PC, 3,000 times more RAM and WAY faster too, processing power difference is off the chart and speed difference, who knows so what will the new hardware be like.Â I can only imagine desktop machines will be a thing of the past and probably laptops as we know them.Â
When I was at school we used slide rules.Â Electronic calculators, the hand held kind, were very expensive so were not available. Now everyone walks around with the then equivalent of a mainframe in their pocket. So what will the future bring and what will beÂ the software that will run it.Â I do not imagine Windows 10.xx will be part of that future.
