"I just have a hunch that bridging the gap so that you have the same look and feel across platforms from a phone to a desktop will be attractive to a lot of people."

IMO calling it a "gap" is only a way to justify MS mistakenly making their flagship product (desktop OSes) work & look like the UI of pocket portable devices (an area where MS has relatively too poor a position from which to be bridging gaps).

Desktop users need touchscreens like a hole in the head (think of why they use a desktop rather than their phone or tablet).
