Windows Okay, so this is new. When it comes to graphical user interfaces, everyone is copying everyone, but you'll always find supporters of platform Abc claiming platform Xyz is stealing from them - and vice versa. Mac supporters have often stated that Vista and Windows 7 were copying from Apple, and according to Microsoft's partner group manager, Simon Aldous, this is true. Wait, what?

"Well, I guess I'm blind then or something. The Aero look bears no resemblance whatsoever to the Aqua look"

I said, "The former is less specific but can see where the inspiration derived from. The later is so apparent that I don't believe that I actually need to make such comparisons." You're speaking of the former example where the similarities are less specific yet you're asking that I provide examples like those that are more obvious ion the latter scenario. In other words, you didn't answer the question properly.
