Apple's new iPad OS is just in name only – for now, but the forked version of iOS could be a threat to Microsoft Surface down the road, at least for regular consumers (not "pros"). That's because the more iPad OS becomes like Windows 10 and the Surface, the more average people will see it as a viable light computing solution.
All that and more on this audience-driven #AskDanWindows episode, so grab your favorite non-energy drink and watch for a few minutes!
