edit: actually a week ago a windows 8.1 update added a feature to windows and it can act as a miracast receiver, so even now you should be able to remotely manage your blackberry on windows 8.1

Will BlackBerry Blend maybe also work with e.g. Apple or Android Smartphones which only have BBM installed? So BlackBerry Blend could be used as an alternative to Thunderbird or Outlook, for example. And everyone's desktop system would become additionally an each specific home server for every (just) BBM User worldwide. Wouldn't that be just really cool and could become most popular!?

Let us say, you're a guy who works stuffs on a pc...
and you are too busy or you are anticipating things that are going on in your work and a message came out from your clients or boss and you heard the tone...
Would you rather pick your phone and/or grab it from your pocket to check it out, or just alt tab within your pc?
You are playing games with your friends online on a pc and your psycho-girlfriend texted you.
You would just probably ignore the message if you're brave enough. Lol

Saying that there shouldn't be desktop bbm because it could be compromised is a perfect example of security through obscurity. Android and ios are pretty vulnerable too. Also, why in the hell would it be compromised through pc? Keyloggers exist for ios and android too. Skype and viber are the only true cross platform clients and both suck. Bbm could fill that gap
If you want to live in the past and use multiple clients that's up to you, but the market has spoken and bbm is nowhere now. Any phone can be compromised if the user is a fool. Your phones could have silently sideloaded apps just because you connected them to a pc, sachesi can do it too without extra permissions, a virus could do that too.
Edit: how comes bbm through blend is not a security issue for you then? It's not any different. Making it possible for android/ios/wp users to use bbm on their desktop even if it's through a program like blend is just a step forward

BBM desktop support can be only reason to use BBM in 2014 when you have great alternatives for only mobile IM. I can see BBM pushing Skype if BBRY manages to make BBM good enough.
