    I don't think there's a need to worry. The traditional desktop will be around for decades. It'll just become a niche market occupied by developers and enterprise.

    The developers also aren't interested in the ability to run native code on the device.
    In other words, the users also aren't interested in the ability to run Boot to Gecko on the device.

    That's exactly why we NEED to worry. If the traditional desktop goes back to being a specialized product for a niche market, the pricing and feature set will go back to being out of reach to the average person.

    Developers (particularly in open source development) rarely follow what the wants are of the end users are, I really don't think you can play connect the dots between the two.
