    Guess who said this...

    ... we really should have one silicon interface for all of our devices. We should have one set of developer APIs on all of our devices. And all of the apps we bring to end users should be available on all of our devices.

    Guess who said this....
    I'm thinking about it

    I'm thinking it was Khan Noonien Singh.
    Or maybe Thomas Edison.

    I'm thinking Thomas J. Watson (Chairman of the Board of International Business Machines), 1943

    No, wait. He's reputed to have said 'I think there is a world market for about five computers'

    It is a lofty goal, but the priority should not be on the goal alone, it should be making the goal while exceeding user expectations about software in the process. Windows 8 is an example of how simply aiming for the goal can bring a lot of negative consequences to a goal that could bring major positives.
