In the sense the planet is now infested with mobile devices (many more powerful than the desktops of yesteryear), and the growing ubiquity of internet-of-things devices you "consume," rather than interact with directly ... I'd say we're definitely in a post-pc era.

But, the mammoths (mainframes/servers) are not gone. The "killer apps" seem to have stabilized around browser, spreadsheet, word/document processing, and "gaming" is an even more major driver of hardware innovation and sales.

I recently made the mistake of installing Grab's Windows app: it required a JavaScript/Browser shell from some gaming company (BlueStacks): unusable, broken. In that case, I'd say the company did not see a native Win desktop app as a priority, given their business model.
