Can we expect anything less from a generation of people that graduate from high school and college, but they can barely read, write or spell? When the ignorant are allowed to breed, and make big decisions that affect the intelligent, all kinds of bad things can happen, LOL.
Seriously though... Death of the PC has been predicted many times. If the enthusiasts buying killer products all die, and the money dries up for the products they always purchased, that could really happen. Kids can only afford consoles and cheap, under-performing mobile devices. As disposable as they are, they end up in landfills quickly and the concepts of modding, performance tuning and tweaking is like a foreign language to them. After all, if Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo offer it for sale, it must already be awesome, right?
Kind of like the concept of everyone driving crappy electric cars. They call it "vision," "innovation" and "progress" when it's really quite the opposite if you're a performance enthusiast. It really sucks when some people get their way.
