For the average consumer yes. Most people turn to phones or tablets for their day to day shit. Nobody is buying a desktop to browse the internet or read their email anymore. There's still enough of a market to sustain them though. Desktops probably aren't going to go away in the office any time soon and the gaming market is always going to be big money.

The biggest reasons desktops are alive are businesses, and gaming. Until there are better alternatives than desktops for these, they won't die.

I can't deal with it.

I never do any cloud shit its just weird to me.

When I installed Windows 10 it automatically put all my music in my SkyOne or whatever and it scared the shit out of me. How did it move stuff from my external archive (that just happened to be plugged in) into the cloud? Deleted that crap and installed Linux. I've never felt so violated.

Even at companies it's mostly laptops anymore. They can be carried between meetings and checked out to take home for extra work.

For consumers, it's all just phones and maybe a tablet. I've seen people do college courses on their phones.

Unless someone needs a GPU for something, they probably don't have a desktop.

Every single desk in my company has a desktop with at least 2 monitors. Laptops are for FAGS.

We had laptops with docking stations and 2 screens.
Being able to take them to meetings and home was quite useful, though you could also remote into your work machine.
