VGA will be on motherboards until 2014.
Let that sink in. DVI has existed since 1999 and those piles of [REDACTED] keep putting a worthless pile of [REDACTED] port from last century on their boards.
Nothing takes 20 years. Just 15.
Oh, and you can still get motherboards with PS/2 ports and PS/2 mice and keyboards still ship with low end PCs. USB has had its kick in the pants since 1997.
So that's another set of 15 years and counting
