"Modern" look can be Horrible and cold too -- like those awful Sparse "loft Style" apartments with that dark "metallized / semi brick minimalist" look which is a cross between a typical Moscow sleazy nightclub and a noisy hotel and come with a stratospheric price tag as well - give me a nice cluttered looks lived in place with some Real wooden floors (not that synthetic laminate stuff) and some SOLID real craftsmen produced furniture.
"Modern" styles have a habit of getting out of date very quickly -- Classic stuff "improves with age". !!!!
Until something can DECENTLY replace a mouse, keyboard AND monitor (these days I use at least TWO - often three large ones) then a DESKTOP OS will stay around.
WZOR - often good for leaks / whispers about coming Windows releases implies that W9 might even be here at least in a lab as a POC before the end of the year but might have significant Cloud and subscription stuff in it too. That battle is still going on apparently in Redmond's hallowed halls.
The generation AFTER the current one might start to tire of mobiles -- so we shall see what they produce - but I can't see the PC going the way of the dodo any time soon.
