Video: Smartphone Suit Against Google Plays Into Rivals' Hands

Video: There Will Be One Windows For All Your Devices. Soon.
Pretty soon, you won't have to worry about what version of Windows your device is running, because they will all be the same. At least that's what CEO Satya Nadella said to analysts during the company's quarterly earnings call on Tuesday. All signs were already pointing in this direction, but this is the first confirmation that Microsoft is working to truly unify its core software. Nadella said, "We will streamline the next version of Windows from three operating systems into one single converged operating system for screens of all sizes." Nadella added that the work will be done "in the year ahead," putting Windows' grand unification on schedule with the arrival of Windows 9, due in 2015 at the earliest. When that happens, it would mean phones, tablets, desktop machines and even the Xbox would all run the same operating system, and the lines between Windows Phone and full Windows will be permanently removed. Windows software would simply adapt to whatever device is running it, similar in concept to responsive design.
