Windows 10, inspired by Apple's OS X
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.
