I disagree. I could see XX years in the future that the processor on a cell phone would be powerful enough to suffice; that when you sit down at your desk ,it makes a wireless connection to a desktop-style mouse, keyboard, and monitor to be a workstation. And then going from home to work, etc, it would all be the same device with the same settings.

I'm not saying we're anywhere close to it now, but I think someday the smartphone will be a desktop, an HTPC, a workstation, etc. But this is not to say professional photographers or videographers or audio engineers will do their primary work through a smartphone's interface, because that's just silly.

Really wish you could remote into Linux using this. Use it quite often on my Home Server, works great.

I'm holding out for the MS Tablet that will run full Win8 (and have a kb on the cover instead of as a $70 add-on). I've got an RDP app for my iPad, it's usable but not what I'd call enjoyable to use, I think the MS tablet will be a better choice (hope the resolution is decent).

Most Linux systems support VNC or X2Go. Should be able to get a client for VNC somewhere.
