Sometimes I think that HP's investors just look at a magic 8 ball when they wake up in the morning to decide what they want to do with the corporation they run.   Spongebob and Patrick could do just as good for a lot less.

What was the last report on percentage of OS market, including tablets (smartphones don't count)? Not high enough to worry about...

Not sure either. If I recall correctly, about the time HP said they were getting rid of their PC division, there were many people talking about how smartphones and tablets would replace desktops, even though many of us still would prefer desktops and laptops over tablets due to more processing power, keyboard and mouse, and many other reasons.

I find it hard for anyone to be able to type a LONG document, do spreadsheets, programming, 3D Animation, and other business applications on a tablet

tablets will never replace the desktop in areas of development...
