    Hey all,

    i just saw this on gizmodo:

    and it makes me think, actually even Bill knows that alot of it is lifted from mac, including imovie and iphoto features, which he mentions were firsts on the vista OS.

    This isn't me bashing microsoft, i just kinda think its sad he says it with no real conviction and also perhaps microsoft have missed out on creating a new, innovative OS which could have been so exciting for all computer users, regardless of (OS) religion.

    I don't care what MS copies from OS X, just so long as OS X is pushing the bar in every way... performance, modern technologies, UI, features, enterprise tech, etc, etc. Unfortunately, though, MS is ahead in some of those things - such as networking performance, filesystem performance, many characteristics of the UI, and definately enterprise software.

    I'm just about dying due to the lack of Leopard info lately! Com on, Apple! BLOW OUR MINDS! Microsoft failed to do so with the Vista launch.

    Meh. He always seems so awkward in interviews and covers up the tricky questions poorly. He just needs better spin doctors and public speaking skills.

    Hahaha, easily applicable to both I'd say. :D

    Have to give Bill some credit though, he's no where near as dimwitted.

    Now, now. I never meant for this to end up in the politics forum. :D

    Seriously though, Microsoft have atrocious marketing...

    "join the social"

    "experience the wow"

    What a load of rubbish. Hopefully they continue with this strategy and continue to encourage people to switch.

    Maybe that's why he left so fast, he was in a hurry to join the social?
