Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y A lot of people seem to have this idea that Windows Vista looks an awful lot like the MacOS. sets some screenshots side-by-side for comparison, and even though they refrain from judgement ("We're just saying"), I do wish to make a few sidenotes about this issue. Read more for a mini-article on the issue.

It's all to easy for Mac fanboys to knock Microsoft when it comes to copying, but it's a pity they don't take a closer look at Apple. It's no secret tat Steve Jobs got his Mac inspritation from a trip to Xerox PARC many years ago. If you've ever used Nextstep or Objective-C then you're basically using something that heavily derives from the Smalltalk language.

Apple may be the biggest mp3 manufacturer but they were not the first to release one. OSX is a BSD OS, so you could argue there's no innovation here...

Even if MS have copied, it's arguable that they've done a better job. For example, I think Explorer is a far better than Finder.
