I'm not surprised at all. Although I disagree that we're in the "post PC" era, when Apple says "post PC", that also means "post Mac"; a Mac is a PC.

If he doesn't like the way OS X is going, he's *really* going to be displeased when he sees it replaced by iOS in another year or two.
I recall some speech Jobs gave long ago that OS X was the "Operating System for the next 10 years". He was also very pumped up about having *one* platform.

Unless Apple is no longer run by the ghost of Steve Jobs, it will happen.
Hopefully, they won't insist on the same UI across all platforms... even if the plumbing does get unified.

I don't know if Windows is getting any better though. Windows 8 is geared so heavily towards tablet and entertainment itself that it will leave enterprises with a sour taste in their mouths. Granted it still has most of its core, the functionality that cannot be bypassed (swipe, Windows tiles (metro, whatever) cannot be ignored.
