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?

The thing I find interesting about this article is how it sounds like it's publishing was done as an act of damage control.

Microsoft said that they got their inspiration from Apple. Mac users have been saying this for a while. Just because Thom and those like him didn't like how that made him/them feel doesn't change the fact that Microsoft does (and apparently did) hold up the Mac UI as a standard they would like to attain.

The damage control stance that this article seems to take only tends to reinforce the notion that appears obvious to some of us that this site would like to bring Apple down a few pegs.
