    the desktop remains as the primary workhorse for most business users. This is where the productivity applications live, where large spreadsheets and full-screen applications are run, and where keyboarders and production data entry users operate. Tablets, touchscreens and mobile devices just don’t provide the same capabilities unless you tether them to full size monitors and keyboards. Even then they may not because they might not run the same OS as the desktop. The point is that the desktop hasn’t gone away and isn’t likely to any time soon. Users may use more mobile apps and devices, but this isn’t diminishing use on the desktop as much as it augmenting it. com/2016/01/12/mobilizing-quickbooks-desktops-hosted-quickbooks-for-remote-and-mobile-access/
