Apple Ready to Kill OS X?

"I don’t have anything against Apple or its wonderful Mac OS X. It’s a fine piece of creation from all imaginable angles - intuitive GUI, lack of malware, ease of use, robustness, and stability. What more could you ask for from an OS? In reality, OS X is what Windows can never be. But I fear, will Apple pull the plug on OS X in the future?
