Anyone who thinks this exact kind of thing isn't coming to OS X is kidding themselves. Microsoft may have done it first but make no mistake, Apple wants in on this too. They can wait longer because they have a monopoly on the hardware market for their platform and have managed to convince people to overpay for hardware because tons of people just own Macs because they're fashionable but they want their cut of app sales on every platform just like Microsoft does.

I highly doubt it, and here's why... They have too many creative studios using OSX and software that runs on OSX, so OSX will always remain OSX.

What you are talking about... and what MAY happen... is they start introducing PURE IOS iMacs, Mac Minis, and Macbooks, all with touch screens. (except the mini)... eventually they'd phase out OSX like they did with OS9.

They will continue to add IOS-like features to OSX... but they aren't going to do what MS did to their OS (Basically pasting the mobile OS on top of the desktop). Once the IOS platform has enough horsepower in a majority of the devices... and professional apps start appearing... THAT is when they will phase out OSX... and that ain't gonna happen for several years.
