well, as I read, this was around before windows 95 and maybe even before 3.1. Keep in mind, this is from the late 80's.. technically ms windows copied this.

GEOS 1.0 came out a few months after Windows 3.0. So they were essentially developed at the same time.

yes... but GEOS began developing the Windows 95 look and feel before Microsoft ever thought about it. The article summary and even Breadbox doesn't know much about the product they've repackaged. GEOS doesn't mimic the Win95 look and feel, it originated it.
