the concept behind windows 7 comes from office 07, I guess when the head of office took over windows 7 he brought the design idea with it. only time will tell how that goes, the design of office 07 is a bit annoying.
But hey, people still claim vista looks like KDE 4, despite vista being out before KDE 4
In the end, I guess everything was taken from everything else. KDE took from microsoft, microsoft took from KDE, they time travelled a few years into the future, took KDE 4, then time travelled back and made it into vista. Apple took from microsoft and KDE, time travelling before microsoft. Now Apple have time travelled ahead to where the human race has contact with aliens, thus taking the alien operating system and travelling back to the past to make that into the next operating system. Microsoft have bypassed the alien race’s operating system and have sent a representative to the spirit world to steal God’s operating system.
in the meantime, I actually care more about how the system works than what it looks like. So I am just going to time travel and bring back the alien operating system.
