I'd think it more likely that we will get a paradigm shift that totally changes the way we program / use computers, something away from the bit-oriented-glorified-adding-machine that we all know and love.

Quantum computers?
True neural nets?
AI?
Enhancements to the brain?

I dunno - but it should be interesting (and probably totally unexpected)!
Real men don't use instructions. They are only the manufacturers opinion on how to put the thing together.
