Windows The Verge published a video demonstrating how desktop mode and Office 2013 - a desktop application - work on Windows RT, the ARM version of Windows 8. The video showed a desktop mode that clearly didn't work well for touch, and even Office 2013, which has a rudimentary touch mode built-in, didn't work properly either. It looked and felt clunky, often didn't respond properly, and even showed touch lag.

Are you claiming that BSDs have the advantage that the kernel and user-space are made by the same people?

What about Linux and things like Wayland and systemd? Those are Linux-only and were designed for Linux in mind.

Anyway, I can see the advantage of having an unified system but I don't think the NIH Syndrome is an advantage, but to each his own I guess.
