Hmm… Where are all the Mac worshipers? I would have expected a bunch of them to have jumped into the bandwagon by now
Kidding aside, I dont really see any news in this… copying others is something that happens every day in global marketing/business, although it really gets you nowhere as far as novelty and innovation is concerned. But whenever a good idea comes to town, everyone is keen and quick to copy/absorb… or not?

I’m only worried that they’re trying to copy the “It Just Works” from Apple!! cause that can only mean one thing; they will try to hide all the security issues and black holes, mask all what matters under the hood, and give it glittery “Magical” names…
we don’t need that $hit from Microsoft… the thing I’m proud of being a PC user against the Mac ignorance plague, is that we DO KNOW what we have… and it doesn’t “Magically” “Just work”… but neither does a Mac… and before any Macboy jumps now I am an old Mac user , and I am using one at work right now (Mac Pro company choice… not mine…), all that is left from the glorious days of the G4 is a glittery shell based on a PC and performs in quarter speed… crashes like hell, and needs a “Genius” to fix it…
Microsoft have done one hell of a job with Win7, they won so many disappointed users back, and gained new ones with a clean and fast system… I hope the Win8 will be just as impressing, and hopefully they will bring back the “Up One Level” command back to “Backspace” instead of the “Back” command… that’ll be nice
Just don’t drink the cool-aid.
