Seems to be a common theme... Merge or split?

It's Time to Bring Back NT

It's from Paul at Winsupersite. I'm curious what you think.

(Context: I'm a big fan of everthing Windows 8, including the modern UI) I found myself thinking a new NT is an alright idea. Having a no frills workhorse operating system for home/work PC's that need to run heavy programs (in my case AutoCAD) and having Windows 8 (Metro) as a non-power user/consumption device...

I'm not totally sold on it, but there are some interesting thoughts in the article... For me the idea of merging Windows to work on all devices vs. splitting Windows to serve different needs stood out. Thoughts?
