Yes, fragmentation is probably the biggest obstacle to efficient 
use of computing.

There is a very simple and effective way of integrating the familiar 
Oberon TUI with the gestural touchscreen approach.  The result, I 
believe, is more powerful than any extant interface. 

I have a description of this interface and am working on a prototypical 
implementation.  To avoid pre-emption of the ideas by commercial 
interests, details have not yet been published.

Best Regards,       ... Peter E.
