You're the Pundit: Will iOS and OS X merge?


Other sites have rumors and speculation. We have the TUAW braintrust. We put the question to you and let you have your go at it. Today's topic is operating systems. Are iOS and OS X set to merge?

Under the hood, these operating systems are very close cousins. They share many frameworks and many APIs. Sure, there are differences, particularly in system services, multitasking support, and windowed UIs. Apple said, though, that Lion was designed to integrate the best features of iOS.

Could the two grow even closer? Will we be seeing a merged universal Apple OS in the next few years? Or will we see more platform definition as the operating systems grow apart?

You tell us. Place your vote in this poll and then join in the comments with all your predictions.
