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.

Featurevise Redmond might have ripped off MacOS X - and it seems they've been planning some functionality but have been unable to replicate - like the heavy discussed database add-on to NTFS (WinFS, second edition).

But lookwise it rather look like a KDE2/3 rippoff.
