Apple I thought OSNews would be a good forum to talk about a matter that has been weighing on my mind lately primarily because the site has been so focused on Apple's patents and litigation as of late. The news that HP, the largest PC manufacturer in the world is spinning off or getting out of this business is what really prompted me to write this article.

The problem with stretching the term "innovation" that far, is that then almost anything can be called innovative, making it a pretty meaningless word.

For instance, the first version of Windows wasn't exaclty like the original Mac OS. If you count the differences between both systems (support for overlapping windows, for example) then you could say that Microsoft was innovative too. Maybe their product was worse than the one it was insired by, but "innovation" and "quality" are two completely different concepts.

So I more or less agree with the OP. I think "perfectionist" would be a much more accurate description of Apple than "innovative".
