Excerpt from a VMworld 2011 keynote summary
The idea of a post-PC era runs counter to the vision Microsoft likes to promulgate. Earlier this month, Microsoft PR boss Frank Show sought to debunk the post-PC era meme, blogging that "PC plus" would be a better term.
Maritz, though, noted that personal computing era was largely about automating white-collar work. Increasingly, though, workers are using computers differently. They're connecting via social networks and collaborating using Internet applications.
"The problem is that people under 35 don't sit behind desks. They don't lovingly create documents," Maritz said. "We're moving to a post-document era."
