      Thanks for conveying this message! I'm a software developer and my work requires a lot of coding and design that is best suited for a MacBook. I personally like a MacBook over iPads as full blown desktop class operating system is what I need, and I don't like to carry around iPad like a toy to where I work. The 13" MacBook Pro is my favourite piece of equipment for its performance, amazing portability, and just the way it looks and feels. Combine that with the ability to run windows too, its just a dream device for me. I will never in a million years, switch to anything else other than my 13" MacBook Pro no matter what anyone says. I absolutely and entirely loved this idea when it got announced.! I really hope apple comes out successful with this idea.

        No, I think the Catalysts Project is a two year plan for the A-series chip based Mac in 2021, Mac developers would have a much easier time fixing their apps.

            Just came across this! Will apple highlight apps that have been 'macinized' or will we have to just buy and try apps until we realise they aren't native MacOS apps? I'm all for apps being run on MacOS god knows we need a bigger App Store.. but I want to be told they are iOS 13 apps... not just blindly buying them in the App Store.

              Hi !
              Thanks for the informations and the quality of explaining the purpose of this project.
              I have a question, I'm working in audio pro/event. I have some mixing console app on IOS, could I'll get it on macOS Catalina or it's just for "social" app ?

              Thanks for the answer !

                With all the talk of putting MacOS on the iPad - I think focusing on beefing up one of the most important components, Safari, in iPadOS was a good strategic move - web apps are still the future & will retain Apple’s orig vision of iOS since 2007 imho. I am very eager to toss the idea of refreshing my ole skool 2007 MacBook and the combination of the iPad Pro, iPadOS, Project Catalyst, and this video definitely gives me hope we’re going in the right direction. Id be down to 1 last desktop app: TheBrain and once that goes, I’m about to throw Linux on it to buy more time for this convergence to happen. Now to be fair, I was a coder in a past life so I do have a secret wish for Xcode support on the iPad Pro 😉

                                Can you give the non-apple peeps a reason to not pray for its failure? If marzipan succeeds, there will be more services that only have macos desktop apps, or services like Evernote where the windows app is always years behind the mac app. Electron forever!

                                    The only problem for me is that I have stopped using my Macbook pro 15" and my iPad pro 1st edition. Currently typing this from a $350 Samsung Chromebook Plus with 4GB, Celeron and LTE. I haven't used either Apple devices in 2 months, except when I need to do some heavy lifting. This little Chromebook runs full chrome and its apps, android and its apps, and linux for 3 great programs - one for video editing, an email manager, and a text editor. If I can have this incredible of a computer experience on a $350 device with crappy hardware, I see no reason to spend $$$ on apple devices anymore. They're late to the game.

                                                      Being a JavaScript developer, Electron apps are very easy to code and compile, they work great too.

                                                      Skype .. slack.. are made using electron best part they work on every OS
