If so I think it would be very, very messy and difficult at this point, and success isn't at all guaranteed, though I think they will have to in the end. Many seem to think the cloud is the end of history that ends the OS wars, but I think unix is that end. MS is enjoying a massive wave of optimism now, but I'm doubtful it can continue to reinvent the wheel and still be competitive with those without the baggage of a monolithic OS. Even if, as many think, the OS doesn't matter anymore there's even less reason to keep doing it so I don't see how the cloud solves anything about this for them, even if it creates problems for their competitors. For all the talk about their supposed diversification, they couldn't lose one of two major cash cows without a rewrite of the current narrative about them.
Edit: I guess a quick reply is to the thread; to no one in particular, which is what I wanted.
It also doesn't give you all the mark-up choices like BOLD and italics (colored too), the link tag, or various other markup tags.
Not a big deal, and I sometimes prefer showing the whole URL on links anyway. And if you start typing in "quick reply" and then decide you want some of the markup choices, you can click the reply button.

For those still up, Costco is starting to have Macs (sounds like that is new, though they've had various other Apple products). It looks like generally they are $50 off, though the MacBook Air has a special $150 off that, through tonight. Delivery is the week of the 26th, so maybe their agreement was no deliveries in time for xmas at that reduced rate. We went ahead and bought one, though the advertised Costco Citibank card is annoying that it happily approved us, but then didn't let us use it to buy the Mac.
Oh well, always a reminder, in various things in life, that not everyone streamlines things as much as Apple would (though I bet in this case, that Amazon would have made it work too).
Woo Woo! Now we'll have a system to run Turbo Tax 2018. As Mater would say, "Life doesn't get much better than that". At least at the moment, until AAPL ticks up a bit.
mercel: It's been a long strange trip - good to see you're still around (and in AAPL -my assumption).

sponge: Regarding the future of VR, I think it will be huge. I was a gamer when I was in college. But as an adult I lost interest. Last fall I flew up to visit my son at college and check out his new Vive set up. After playing with it for the weekend, I was
