And in the 80's, most computers were restricted to one OS. Try booting MS-DOS on a Tandy TRS-80, or Commodore BASIC on an IBM PC/AT, etc etc. I

have great expectations for Google's Project Ara, giving us PC-esque intercompatability and modularity. Most importantly, if it becomes a de-facto standard, many other OS vendors, hardware makers etc will target the Ara platform.

As it is at the moment, the mobile device market is still very much in it's infancy. Time will eventually create a standard, and time will eventually weed out most OS competitors, we're just not that far along yet. Give it 6 years.
