As already pointed out, it depends on the domain. A WM or a WM + DE and
a MUA and browser works great. Professional real-time audio doesn't
work at all. There are for sure many domains were it does a good job,
but there are also for sure some domains were it can't be used. IOW the
OP needs to mention what the desktop PC should be used for.
