Editorial Like many of you, I've been watching the big changes in user interfaces over the past few years, trying to make sense of them all. Is there a common explanation for the controversies surrounding the Windows 8 UI and Unity? Where do GNOME 3, KDE, Cinnamon, and MATE fit in? This article offers one view.

"The puzzler here is why Microsoft decided on one OS with a single interface for both desktops/laptops and its Surface handhelds. The winners in the handheld OS competition, after all, have decided on a two-OS approach."

Because there is already an very good and extremely popular mobile OS for Windows users. It's called "Android".
