    Our friends in Redmond have decided to take a page from Mac OS X. The artcile states the following in bold at the beginning:

    "Known for years by the code name "Longhorn," the successor to Microsoft's Windows XP has been dubbed "Longwait" for its numerous delays. As features have been announced, it's also been accused of copying Apple Computer Inc.'s Mac OS X."

    Later on it states:

    "Mac fans are probably screaming. Yes, this is very similar to the Spotlight function in the recent update of Mac OS X. At this stage of development, Vista does bear a significant resemblance."


    "With Windows Vista's User Account Protection, even administrators are prompted for a password whenever anything is installed or a system setting changed. It's an extra layer of protection that's long been a part Unix-style operating systems, including Mac OS X and Linux"

    So I guess Redmond did start those copiers!! When Leopard is released, OS X will still be two steps ahead of Vista
