Future of desktop apps?

I loved this article on the BBC website; quite a prophetic vision and one to which I certainly subscribe. Maybe I’m blinded by my love of handheld and slightly larger portable computing devices such as the iPad – but it certainly feels to me as if app-based computing is the most likely contender for the major future model.

I guess it will take us a while to get there, but in the meantime of course centralised computing (VDI, presentation virtualisation etc) will act as a staging post in much the same way as x86 server virtualisation seems to be a stop on the way to Platform-as-a-Service-based cloud computing… Or have I just got my head in the clouds today?
