Scrapping compatibility goes a long way towards solving a lot of the legacy issues. Scrapping the idea of "being all things to all people" takes it even further.


When I read this I immediately thought "tablets".

They had a good run, companies made billions from them, but every market analyst is now saying sales have flatlined, if not declined altogether, for the past few years and there's no sign of that ever reversing course. Already.

They do a good job of "not being all things to all people", and for a lot of them this is all they need. But it's clear right now they're never going to be a complete replacement for what came before (and I'm not sure honestly if that was ever anyone's stated goal), and because of that, instead of simplifying things, they now add to the ecosystem complexity. I don't see how we can achieve a "full reset". Maybe a giant, planet-wide EM pulse like they like to do in the movies. Smile | :)
