Yes. That is an easier way to put it. Consumers use mobile because it does what they need easier and more conveniently. Creators use computers because they need the power and control.People who just use computers to CONSUME content use phones and tablets. People who use computers to CREATE (and also consume) use pc's.
I guess it's easy to get locked in a bubble. I spend a lot of time here on the forum, or other ones for game developers, Linux programmers, I follow artists on Twitter. Pretty much everyone I interact online with is either a PC gamer or a creator of some sort. But probably the vast majority of people don't need what a PC offers to go through their day. Maybe they have a computer at work (depends what kind of job), but a tablet can do quite a lot if you just want to watch Netflix, or scroll on Twitter, check your email. It's fine. And I'm okay with that. Not everyone is going to be an amazing artist, or a great programmer, or whatever. Sure. But they should be taught the skills to at least have that opportunity. And if you don't know what a file is, your chances of accomplishing that are zero.
