Steve Todd "what Microsoft invented themselves?"
The obvious difference between MS and Apple is that Apple steals ideas from others and then claims they thought of it, as has been their motto for decades and echoed by their paid-off media hacks as Apple being the great innovator.
Neither Microsoft nor Bill Gates has ever promoted themselves as an innovator, but more as a product Integrator. MS doesn't hide the facts that they've bought most of the individual software PIECES they have Integrated into bundles. MS was the FIRST to sell an Integrated office application suite in MS Works and Office. Apple had to BUY ClarisWorks to get their bundle! (and it wasn't even complete either).
Yeah, so show us WHAT has Apple innovated in software since System 7 thru OS 9?? OS X is a rip off of BDS, UNIX and the quirks of NeXT (and it's buggy as hell and security holes Apple patches more often then MS does Windows.)
Apple bought Final Cut Pro, bought iWorks, and bought Logic Pro; all the other dweebie "iApps" are dorky ultra scaled down versions of other programs and generally they suck - like iPhoto, iDVD, iMovie or HD and iCal - are all iCrap.
Oh, Apple threw together Aperture, but what a flop - NO "Pros" use it, and here's what reviews say according to Wikipedia: "A number of reviewers have commented that the performance of Aperture v1.5.x is markedly worse than that of Adobe Lightroom v1.0.x." (Lightroom - an AMATEUR program!)
So hey Apple FanBoi, people in iGlass Houses shouldn't throw stones .... especially when they DON'T do any research first (typical Apple Kool Aid Drinker).
