Hmm… Where are all the Mac worshipers? I would have expected a bunch of them to have jumped into the bandwagon by now :stuck_out_tongue:

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 :slight_smile:
