Link: Comparisons between MS's Athens prototype machine and the PowerMac G5. Many similarities... except the Athens is due in a few years. (http://macslash.org/article.pl?sid=03/07/24/096258&mode=thread)

Again Microsoft follows their standard MO of copying Apple.

Does Gates have no pride? I don't back MS too often, but that is the biggest copy of Apple's tech that I've ever seen!

BTW, why does a firewire port need to light up green when plugged in?

OMG, that is the biggest knock-off of Apple right there. The display looks like Apple's. They have a webcam on the display with a microphone. And MS is building features into their OS that Apple had in 2001. Not that they shouldn't make innovations, but make it on your own. GRRR.. It's this kind of stuff that makes me mad.

Not only is the phone handset wired, and the video camera on the side, but Bill Gates kinda looks like an evil Mr Rogers. I never thought a bout but he looks really old. At least Steve still wears jeans.

Also, I personally hate little lights for the sake of little lights. My Dad's DVD player(I'm soon moving out on my own and to London, I'm only 20, and the girls love me, I'm not a geek...) has a red light for when the DVD player is turned off. Why do I need a lights for when it's turned off?
