Editorial In response to Jean-Louis Glassee's article "The OS Doesn't Matter..." I wrote quite simply: the future of the browser wars is he who integrates with the OS best. This phrase came from my article lambasting Microsoft's use of HTML for their IE9 jump lists, which caused quite a stir. In the wave of ever increasing web browser capability, the operating system is going to matter to web users more than it ever has before.

If the OS didn't matter, then there would be no OS wars. Windows, GNU/Linux, MacOS, none of it would matter and everyone could switch to GNU/Linux in a blink of an eye. But that doesn't happen. And people still buy Apple hardware because of MacOS. The OS will always matter.
