To heck with microsoft. They don't have a creative instinct in any of their products (except fpr thei roptical mouse, which was pretty cool). But they are good at one thing - stealing. As far as I can tell, almost everything that is so "innovative" about Windows came from either NeXT or Apple. They just had the advantage of working with the major platform, x86.Originally posted by webman2k
Come on people, I'm an avid Mac user- got one at work and home. Even though I'm a big fan of the Mac OS, there are some features that PC users have and we dont. On the other hand, As nice as win 2000 is, there are some features that only Mac users can enjoy. What I'm trying to say is that there is no perfect OS, and neither of them suck. What we need is Apple and Microsoft to work together to make the perfect, unified OS that will bring world peace.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'll retreat into my delusions.
I just thought that I would point out that Microsoft wasn't the first company to make optical mice. I had been using an optical mouse on my computer for 3 years or so before microsoft released theirs. They did however, make it so that the optical mouse did not require a special mouseplate. Which was actually pretty innovative.Originally posted by Ghoser777
