Microsoft is known to be copying Apple's Mac operating system since the first Windows.

This time Microsoft is very much lagging behind Apple by not being able to release their much hyped Vista for the last 5-6 years. Also, it is said that every feature and look Apple comes up with comes back in Vista in one way or another.

Obviously, Apple is pissed that somebody is copying their system and not even good at it.

Hey Ivan. You know we all love Mac here. And yes, Windows, especially the upcoming version Vista, does feature a lot of OSX. On the other hand I have to say that I have both systems at home and actually they copy from each other. And why not? If something works well, why not use it for your own purposes? I just call it evolution ;-)

Don't listen to me, I'm very much biased when it comes to Apple. Hey, I even called my daughter Apple.

But, yes, I'm sure Apple lifted certain things from MS too.

One small thing guys: All of Apple's OS upgrades have had cat names (Panther, Jaguar, Leopard, etc.) So the double dig on Microsoft is saying their copy of Leopard is another cat - a copy cat.

Go Mac!

actually, they would get it, and yes, they would care. very much. it's at WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) which is Apple’s most important annual event for hardware and software developers to receive in-depth information and instruction from Apple's technical architects and engineers.
