Many Mac power users and developers are concerned about the iOS-ification of the Mac OS and how much more of that process will be found in sessions at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) next week in San Francisco. A recent developer blog post recalls talks by Steve Jobs from a 6 years ago, where he speculated on whether computer users really needed to interact with a file system. But to me, it also recalls a mostly forgotten Apple OS from around 20 years ago.
A tablet computer combining Windows Phone Mango OS and cloud computing could be a mobile monster.
The Cr-48 and Google's Chrome OS makes a great light vacationing computer. But can it and will it replace tens of millions of PCs? I think the answer is yes.

Quo Computers' liquid-cooled Core i7 maxQ2 runs OS X, Linux, Windows 7 ... until Apple says otherwise
In theory, there's no reason you can't run Apple's OS X on non-Apple hardware, since Macs are using the same Intel processors as many PCs do. But actually finding someone who will sell you a computer running OS X who doesn't have Steve Jobs for a boss is quite a challenge, in no small part thanks to Apple's zealous legal team.
Computer giant HP, which acquired Palm earlier this year for $1.2 billion, plans to release a tablet system running Palm's mobile OS webOS in 2011.
Regular readers here know that I am a fan of the Windows Mobile operating system, even though that is not necessarily a popular opinion since it isn't the flashiest and newest OS. I have talked about the strengths of Windows Mobile quite a bit and was pleased to see my friend and MoTR cohost, James Kendrick, post a fair comparison article between Android and Windows Mobile. James takes a look at multi-tasking, available apps, user interface, and computer desktop integration. It was refreshing to see James award the advantage to Windows Mobile in 3 of 4 areas with the last one being a tie.
Back in the days when I had a dedicated Grafitti area on my Palm OS devices I discovered an alternative text entry method (2002 to be exact) that was designed with overlays that you placed on top of the Grafitti area. This text entry method was optimized for stylus entry to minimize the distance you had to travel to enter text since QWERTY keyboards are designed for two handed computer entry. Exideas developed the MessagEase form of text entry that has allowed me to enter text accurately and quickly on various Palm and Pocket PC devices over the years. They have now developed and launched an iPhone solution in case you want to use something other than the default QWERTY keyboard provided by Apple.
