    I remember reading in a Mac Mag about how Microsoft allegedly stole the duck in Mac OS 9 that could be used as a multi-user icon.

    Now that I have XP, I have the proof.

    Here is the Mac OS 9 one:

    To be totally truthful, if you do a horizontal flip on the XP duck it does not look like the 9 duck but I am still very sus
