Inspired by that G6 thread I was considering where the Macintosh operating system would be in ten years. Ten years ago, 1994, we were using Mac OS 7 and had been since the beginning of 1991. By contrast, here in 2004, we are using Mac OS X and some have been since the beginning of 2001. It's an evolution of OS that has taken 10 years almost exactly. Will Apple be able to continue to use the Mac OS X architecture long into the future? When will they have to build a next-generation OS? Will they have the funds and customer base to support another major OS transition? What are your musings on where the Mac OS will be in another ten years?
