    Well basically they said feedback about the Mac OS was that people liked it because it was graphical and shiny. So Microsoft have tried to please Windows users by making it graphical and shiny. I wouldn't say they have 'copied' Mac's look and feel - they have merely used their market research to see what people like in an OS, and then implemented their own ideas.

    Fair play to M$ I say.

    Not to start a flame war just my own opinion

    If they were MS's own ideas then the above article would not exist - you seen the AWDC videos ie

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-2C2gb6ws8"]YouTube- Apple WWDC 2006-Windows Vista Copies Mac OS X[/ame]

    And just because they put things in different places does not mean to say that microsoft are not copying apple ( maybe they are not copying the filing system ie journalled as apposed to dumping data where ever it likes ) but the actual GUI components look more or less the same as far as I can tell.

    you mean to tell me microsoft has access to all that money and they couldn't come up with there own gui that is good and at the same time works without having to reference what OS X looks like ?

    Anyway have got to go to work now , sigh.

    Windows XPeeee here I come.

    Why reinvent the wheel when you can take something that works well and make it suit?

    Do you think every car has it's own model of seat belt? Of course not, they all use the 3-point belt.

    I'm not having a go at Apple here - they obviously do something well. So well in fact that a major competitor aspires for their OS to be more like it. Is that such a bad thing?

    Linux has managed it and they even have compiz which imo is brilliant - what's MS got, Aero and snap ?

    Ok aero and snap are ok but talk about resouce hogger - sorry what graphics cards do you need for aero to work 100% ?

    I know some of the aero features work on a mac mini with onboard graphics but not all of them.

    I was about to pick up on this too, but I've gone one further.

    but it's built on that very stable core Vista technology, which is far more stable than the current Mac platform, for instance.

    I'd debate that. I think they're both as unstable as each other.
