Microsoft Microsoft has reiterated its commitment to the desktop. Building on its co-founder Bill Gates' vision of a PC on every desk in every home, Microsoft will continue to focus on delivering desktop products. And in this context, nothing will change when it comes down to the development of the company's main cash cows. Windows Vista and the 2007 Office System will be followed by Windows Seven and Office 14. Kevin Turner, Chief Operating Officer, present at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference 2007 in Denver on July 10 emphasized the fact that Windows Vista will neither be the last of its kind, nor the last big operating system release from the Redmond company. The same strategy is valid for the Office 2007 System.

Well....
Adolf Hitler ripped off an old wiking symbol.
He flipped it round, and came up with a simillar one as we see with this yin/yang symbol as MS is ripping off.

Soo...
It's nothing new, in the perspective of history...

Edit:
Sorry, it seems (after googling around), that it's not only wikings that used it..
It's an old universal symbol, asian and other parts of the world.
In europe it was used as early as the bronze age, and even earlier... Sooo... Well.
Seems that MS is doing nothing new here, taken the historical perspective in hand.
