This is a great thread,  I was just thinking about this last night
because I have a client to whom I send pgp encrypted email because of
the secure nature of his application data and he complains that he can't
read my email on his mobile device and then asks me to text him
authentication information for one of his servers.

I think mobile devices have their place, but they don't replace a
powerful desktop with a 1 or more good displays.

Look at http://www.fuduntu.org .  A whole new linux distro has sprung up
(and is actually becoming popular) around the Gnome 3/unity thing with
fedora and ubuntu because some people don't think that Linux GUI's
should be primarily oriented toward hand held devices.
