Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Is Windows 7 leaning too much towards the Mac side of life? Many Microsoft bloggers are saying that it does, that Windows 7 is too much "form over function", something they accuse Apple of. While superficially they may have a point, the differences between Windows and Mac OS X are still glaringly obvious. Are a few changes to the taskbar enough to make Windows OS X-like? Bloggers like Mary-Jo Foley, Paul Thurrot, and others seem to think so.

Why would Microsoft inventor of the most successful OS in history, copy from Apple with its useless OS that has little market share and no applications?
The new Taskbar in Windows 7, copies from Windows 1, 2, 3, 9x and XP. It doesn't copy from Apple. The new taskbar is more useful, and functional than Apple's silly dock.
Plus Microsoft allows you to instal the OS wherever you want, unlike Apple, I do believe Apple has the right to restrict the use of its OS.

Microsoft 1 - Apple 0
