    Its just a number that may or may not be used by Apple in the future

    The future of the OS is more integration with iOS

    Agreed. I think Lion is just the first step in the integration between OS X and iOS. I don't think the two will ever be combined into one product but I do see them becoming extremely similar with iOS just being the lightweight version of the two.

    ... or Mac OS being the lightweight version of iOS, no?

    No.

    OS X and it's future will still be needed to do all the heavy lifting of computing, i.e. video/audio/photo editing, CAD, 3D graphics, database entry, complex spreadsheet work etc... iOS isn't built or intended for this line of work. It can do some, but only as a "light" version.

    You totally missed my point; Mac OS has certain iOS features, but not all of them, hence it is "iOS lite", in that regard. No?

    Stating that a Mac is more powerful than an iOS device, was a little obvious; a bit like stating that a rhino has more power than a mouse. :)

    I guess it's a matter of perspective.

    I think depending on how you look at it then your both correct.
