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, you’d be typing in binary code by hand.

Hey, that'd make keyboards less complex and cheaper. The only keys you would need would be 0, 1, Backspace, Delete, Enter, a few directional (arrow) keys, and maybe Escape. Maybe throw in a Ctrl and Alt key as added value so we can use our Delete key to its fullest potential. ;)

It might not be very pleasant to use, though. ;)
