Windows "With today's release of the Windows Vista February CTP, Microsoft has publicly passed a key milestone on the road to launching its new operating system. This release of Vista is 'feature-complete', the company says, meaning that all of the fundamental capabilities that Vista will eventually offer are now baked in." Lots of screenshots included, so go ahead and praise halleluja or declare end of days, boys and girls.

It looks remarkably like MacOS or Gnome in the way it draws many of its windows. Is this part of the Innovation microsoft has been raving about ?

Hate to burst your bubble, but the common Joe end user will think Microsoft is innovating like nobody's business. To them fancy floating transparent jazz will be a whole new world, and they will love Microsoft for it. So to them, it is innovative, and therefore Microsoft can market it as such.

I'm sorry, but I don't see how it likes like OSX or Gnome at all, aside from the fact that all operating systems use windows and wigets.
