Feature requests not marked as "Closed" are still open.  There's no 
guarantee of course that all feature requests will be implemented 
immediately, and given the many priorities for features they're already 
publicly committed to it's understandable that other new features may 
remain in queue longer than we might prefer.

That said, since that request was originally submitted the business 
landscape has changed, and today Apple is the only company pursuing a 
bifurcated OS strategy while Windows, Ubuntu, and others are pursuing a 
unified strategy across all device types (and given that there are 
effectively few differences in use cases between a tablet with a docking 
keyboard and a slender laptop with a detachable touch screen, I feel 
it's reasonable to expect Apple will announce a unified OS strategy 
within another couple years at the outside).

So if you want to add your business use case to the comments there that 
may help raise awareness for the request, though please keep in mind 
that they also have requests from others in our community so there's no 
guarantee they'll stop work on other requested features to jump on this one:
