Stolen OS Idea’s

With Windows 7 just around the corner, the Mac folks are touting what Microsoft stole from the Apple camp and vice versa. Well, it seems that both are guilty of “stealing” idea’s for their ideas and have been for a while now. Is this a consiracy, or the usual evolution of the way things work? Hmmmm…. How many TV’s out there have similar features? Personally, I could care less either way. Just make sure the damn thing works, and works well!

Although Mac fanboys and Windows zealots don’t like to admit it, the fact is that both Windows 7 and Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard contain features that originated in the other OS. Some features were stolen so long ago that they’ve become part of the computing landscape, and it’s difficult to remember who invented what.
