Windows Vista has an inbuilt undelete system based on Windows Server 2003's versioning file system, Microsoft has revealed. The technology, which is automatically switched on in Vista, will be a boon for anyone who has accidentally overwritten their PhD thesis with a BPAY receipt.

All I can is this...

Apple may have borrowed it from Xerox but how long did Apple borrow it from Xerox before Microsoft borrowed it from Apple?

The recycle bin came a long time after the Mac OS. I remember the MS guys saying something like this to the Apple guys:

"You have to delete things twice? How stupid!"

Then Windows 95 came out with the borrowed Recycle Bin. Something tells me that Microsoft wasn't actually borrowing the idea from Xerox directly.
