    I can see one big issue with the "one system across all devices"… how would big updates be handled?

    Right now, the system seems a new iteration of a mobile OS every year or so… iPhone4, now 5, Android Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, etc. But major iterations of OS's come out far more infrequent… Windows Vista, 7, 8, Mac OS Lion, Leopard, Puma, Tabbycat, etc.

    If Windows 8 updates at least once a year, to Windows 9, just like on the mobile system, I could see a LOT of money wasted on having to do major upgrades every year. However, if they only give updates every 3 or so years, they'll seem Very far behind the curve… I wonder where the happy medium will be between overloading with upgrades or too few?
