    well look at the tech today - computers are turning into fashion items, with all fancy designss and bright colours and stuff, so computers will be superstylish by 2022.

    there getting smaller and tvs are getting much more computer compatible. so maybe it would be the case where your computer would just be a little usb sized stick you plugged into any tv you wanted to use?

    bearing the tv thing in mind, the graphical inviroment would have to be in full HD (or probably more by then)

    oh and infact the nezt gen of tv is 3d technology so i'd probably hazard a guess at implementing that into computers.

    i saw on tv the other week that wireless electricity has been invented and is just being perfected and it isnt far away, so by 2022 i'd say at least the rich people would have wireless electricity in there homes, so things like laptop batteries wouldnt be a bother because they would just charge themselves wherever you left them at home.

    we'd probably all be using WiMax internet connections so that isps and the government could have much more control over our private internet access. and again to get rid of cables.

    a few high end computers these days are touch screen so by then i'd say that would come as standard.

    but it wont matter because we'll all be dead from the zombie apocolypse

    Majority of desktops for sale today are shipped with 4 GB of RAM, and those marketed as high-performance are shipped with 8 GB today.
    Surely you think 13 years from now, an average computer will have more than 8 gigs of RAM!

    I kind of think that everyone will carry around micro-computers as wristwatches. They'll have a small holographic projector that can project an image about six inches diagonal into the air, accept voice commands, have constant wireless Internet access through several networks of satellites orbiting the earth, and have about 1TB of solid-state storage, which by then will not have all the issues SSDs have now. They'd be powered by induction recharging, which is using heat to revert the battery to its original, power-having state.

    Workstations as we know them will just be dumb terminals, with just a glassy keyboard unit and attached mouse. You hold your micro-computer up to a connection node, and they'll set up a 16384-bit-encrypted wireless connection. The glassy keyboard would then draw your preferred keyboard layout onto it, and use its integrated holographic projector to display a screen. Peripherals would be attached via a USB 4.0 connection. The really cool people have miniature terminals that they carry around with them.

    Servers would still exist, and be roughly the same as they are today, just a heck of a lot more powerful. You could link a terminal keyboard to them. The TCP/IP would still be used, but instead of all the various TCP protocols like HTTP and FTP, we'd have AMP, the Advanced Meta Protocol, which would have multiple sub-protocols like AMP-FT (File Transfer), AMP-HTA (HyperText Applications), etc.

    By then, the US Government would have shut Microsoft down for attempted antitrust violations in their campaign to spread Windows Nova (aka Windows 9), so everyone would be running Linux (kernel 3 would be out then), BSD, or Haiku. Apple would have died out due to their not-so-smart handling of the Microsoft death crisis. Overall knowledge of computers would have increased, and programming would be a required course in public schools.

    The other idea I have for computers in 2022 is if Microsoft lobbied and bribed the government into making Windows the only legal OS, which they then make even worse and Big Brother-ish. I don't like thinking about that one as much.

    Windows is to Linux as a straw house is to a brick house. The bricks are harder to get started with, but they're higher quality and won't crash as easily.

    if anyone has seen Pale Cocoon, computers are most likely going to be just like the way they are there

    Thought operated, small enough for literally compute as you walk with a completely inconspicuous heads up display. For the home, holographic video games; for work holographic cad programs. I expect to see keyboards and mice for sale as relics for collectors on ebay.

    P.S. and Ubuntu will be on its Future Ferret release

    That's the kind of thing a lot of people predict, but I think we'll still be using mouse and keyboard. It's a good, efficient interface. Touchscreens and the like are good for mobile devices or "kitchen computer" type machines, but for a desktop the keyboard/mouse combo is going to rule for a long time.

    I predict computing is going to more ubiquitous in 2022. We'll still have a big desktop machine or two in the house, but we'll have a dozen other small computers, too. Everybody will have a server and/or media centre PC at home. Our hifis and TVs will be networked computers, and our mobile phones will be multifunction devices that can control anything in the house. Bandwidth will have got to the point where all media is on-demand, and standard broadcast TV will be in decline.

    You came empty handed, that is how you shall leave. Whatever you claim as yours today, belonged to someone else yesterday, will be someone else's tomorrow. This false happiness is the true cause of your sorrows!
