Microsoft? exec admits Windows 7 look and feel a knockoff of Apple?s Mac OS X

in General Discussion edited January 2014

In an interview published today, PCR spoke with Microsoft's partner group manager, Simon Aldous, who offered this admission about Windows 7:

The interesting thing is, [Windows 7] is basically the next version of Vista... One of the things that people say an awful lot about the Apple Mac is that the OS is fantastic, that it?s very graphical and easy to use. What we?ve tried to do with Windows 7 ? whether it?s traditional format or in a touch format ? is create a Mac look and feel in terms of graphics.

Aldous, perhaps realizing that he might have just been a little too honest for a Microsoft employee, then added:

We?ve significantly improved the graphical user interface, but it?s built on that very stable core Vista technology, which is far more stable than the current Mac platform, for instance.

Note to MS: don't do interviews. Your Apple is showing.
