Windows "Imagine a phone that could run real Remote Desktop. Real PowerShell. Anything that can run on your desktop PC. Imagine 'phablet' form factors, similar to today's Samsung Galaxy Note 2, which could dock to a desktop setup and utilize an external display, keyboard, mouse, and other peripherals. Imagine a single set of APIs that work everywhere. Imagine that Phone isn't a whole separate platform, but an app. An app that runs on Windows. Real Windows. The Windows Phone team could never make that happen. But the Windows client team? You betcha. Make it happen, Microsoft. It's time to take the phone seriously." I have never agreed with Thurrot as much as I do right now.

And I have a question: WHY should we want "one device to rule them all" when we've seen time and time again these companies do NOT have any interests but their own at heart?

Lets face it the ones ones really pushing for this are frankly greedy corps who i honestly couldn't care less what they want.

I'm just sick of it

But don't you also have a hidden agenda, why you're against "post PC" future? IIRC, don't you run a small PC shop? ;)
