Graphics, User Interfaces I used to really like skinning my desktops to make them look like another operating system. I stopped doing that years ago; and not necessarily because I wanted to do something more useful with my time. I stopped doing it because I somehow saw how utterly pointless it was. Why? I'll explain-- using Aston Martins and Jaguars. Yes, it's time for another car analogy, boys and girls. Note: This is this week's Sunday Eve Column.

They're both Fords

I guess you're probably forgetting that the Ford Motor Company owns both Jaguar and Aston Martin. To save R&D costs, the new XK probably runs on a very similar chassis (or maybe even the very same platform) as the DB9.
If I'm not mistaken, it's actually the Ford Mondeo platform.
That's why they look so alike.
