Submission + - Bill Gates: The traditional PC is dead (tomshardware.com)

Billly Gates writes: Bill Gates in an interview with Charlie Rose last night defended the move to Metro-size Windows 8 and focus solely on the tablet experience. When asked how he traditional PC users will react, he mentioned with Windows 8 you get the best of both worlds and that the world is moving into tablets and a new PC needs to have both experiences integrated together.

Also, he defended the move to build the Surface while charging his competitors a bundle for Windows 8, saying users can get both experiences whether it is a signature Microsoft one, or from an OEM. Is the desktop really dead or will soon be dying? Or is this just a fad?
