I don't know of any way to get it to work on a Rpi at the moment.

If you have a x86/x64 server somewhere in the house you could try to stream the output from the browser running on the server - or something like that. But I'm guessing the DRM will get in your way. does something like this from a Windows PC to XBMC - but at $70 I would look elsewhere.

The desktop will not disappear. I don't think that's what all the "the Desktop is Dead" hype is about. The desktop will no longer be the primary technology driver and will become a much smaller part of the overall computing-device market - probably to less than 10% of the overall market (including phones, tablets, laptops and whatever comes next).

The desktop IS dead, at least in one sense.
If you buy one now, you might never have to buy one again.

Acknowledging that I might be pulling a "640k ought to be enough for everybody", I predict that a current generation mainline i7 and i5 will be sufficient for any "desktop" task more or less for ever (or until we move away from a physical interface like keyboard / mouse and touchscreens).

My 5 1/2 year old desktop is still a solid workhorse and significantly faster than my new $3000 ultrabook.

It's great for coding, webdesign or anything where you are interacting with two or more windows at the same time.

My coding days are more or less over, but I still find it very useful in almost all tasks. Keeping everything you're working on visible is a great productivity booster. I've had my monitor for roughly 3 months, and it has already paid for itself.

Money can't buy happiness, but it can make you awfully comfortable while you're being miserable. -- C.B. Luce
