But no one will want those AI-powered computers simply because it would be unpractical and expensive. You'd have to retrain people to teach them how to even use it (remember MS Office 2007? I do!). The Desktop hasn't changed since 1995 for a reason. I might be wrong, though... still doesn't sound very accessible.

If it leads to greater efficiency, corporations will not hesitate to pay. As an example in my job as a project engineer I am preparing for a Site Acceptance Test on a multi million dollar upgrade to a pharmaceutical packaging and inspection line. That involves reams of documentation. User Requirements Specifications, Functional Design Specifications, Field Acceptance Testing, Site Acceptance Testing, Process SOPs, Technical and Users manuals and Validation requirements all linked together by a traceability matrix that shows how it all ties together. This is thousands of pages of documents that need to be summarized for different reports and departments at various stages of the process. There are templates and standards for each report they all require pulling information from different sources and referencing it all correctly. Having an AI that could automatically track all that information and populate documents according to the templates and standards, that would be huge. Most corporate document work involves interactions with other docs and drawings and spreadsheets. Automating even a small percentage of that is worth millions in labor savings ( and will involve layoffs across multiple industries)
