Mac OS X Paul Thurrot, everybody's favourite Microsoft Apple Microsoft zealot, writes on his webpage: "It's funny. Apple calls Microsoft a copy-cat, and yet, I feel like I've seen some of these features somewhere before. Many of the features, however, are just sad. Is this really the best they had to show off right now?" El Reg agrees with him, saying: "On the basis of the evidence so far the sixth release of Mac OS X is, to put it bluntly, a point release." Update by ELQ: A related editorial by Wired.

...And they are business partners with Apple. I don't think jobs ever forgets that even for a second. Aple will get traction in the Office because of Microsoft Office. This is just billionares having fun, and peons like us not understanding it.

Heck, I don't think Gates minds Apple saying they copy their features. Only uber geeks who live for the cred would probably mind. They are both insanely rich people and leave it to us to fight over who is the l337 while they laugh all the way to the bank.
