The future of online communications.
How will typical laptops look in the 2020s?
Not sure if that's awesome or my worst nightmare.
Tablets and 2-in-1's are the future, i.e. Surface Pro 3. We just have to make non-shit keyboards for them, though the latest surface line has improved it quite a bit.
Desktop master-rigs will still be popular for the home.

Virtual server hosting --
Hey /g/ does anyone have any experience with paying monthly for a virtual server like this
It says gives you root with a static IP. I basically want to use it to test programs/web dev stuff I like to jerk around with from time to time. I'm curious if you can actually install programs, have access to a desktop environment (though not required) So, anyone out there have any advice/experience with this? I will possibly turn it into a public facing web server down the road.
I have never used 1and1 but the website looks like a fake anti-virus scam site.
>have access to a desktop environment
Its a server anon not a desktop.
But yes assuming 1and1 is not shit you should be able to build your own web server.
