    Windows 10, inspired by Apple's OS X


    Posted: 22 Jan 2015

    Microsoft's deeper reveal of Windows 10 today was marvelously weird. Not only did the live-streamed event have the same delivery hiccoughs as Apple's live streams, but so much of what Microsoft is doing to Windows 10 is following the footsteps of Apple's OS X, which in turn has been following the footsteps of iOS.Part of that similarity reflects industry-wide changes, particularly around supporting multiple devices. But a surprising amount of what's new in Windows 10 is based on Apple's view of that world. It's clear that Microsoft has decided that if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

    To me it sounds like a Apple fan trying to stick up for OSx and putting down Windows at the same time.

    Seems some of the features of notepad hand writing dragging text... came from Google devices not Apple as far as I've seen :/
    I did read somewhere Microsoft did pay Apple for allot of it's touch screen technology though true or not ?

    Lol...;) I will admit that under Sinofsky and Ballmer there was quite a bit of Apple-smooching going on behind the scenes--Win8 (and its rapid popularity collapse) make that point undeniable. But the Apple-smoochers are gone from the upper echelons of company (Ballmer & Sinofsky), and what it seems to me now that Microsoft is doing is "going Apple one better" as opposed to "copying" Apple...;) In short, whatever Apple does Microsoft will do better (when it comes to customer support), and whatever Apple does that Microsoft won't do is all to Microsoft's credit, imo...;) Windows customers have never been Apple customers...most of them having outgrown the need for training wheels of the kind Apple provides long ago. Apple will continue to serve the non-technical crowd as it has always done, because those folks are sitting ducks for the kinds of technical malarkey and double-talk Apple peddles. People who want to know more and to do more are usually Microsoft customers.
