I hope you're right. But looking back...

Much competition + smart people = different standards = nothing gets traction.

The best example I can think of for that is how quad killed surround, and we have yet to see a dominant VR format. Okay, Oculus Quest looks super promising...cool!...oops, now Microsoft has the HoloLens but it's a lot more expensive...

In a way, having only Apple and Windows meant companies could do cross-platform stuff without too much of a stretch. Same with iPhone vs. Android. The different standards didn't get traction...
