Well, you've just revealed that you fall for whatever you read on the net. Microsoft bought DOS from another company (I think they bought the whole company) and the guy who created it became a Microsoft employee.Gates ripped DOS off a small-time programmer
EXactly..:cool2:KingKrool said:As for Vista copying Mac or vice versa, its pretty well known that many Vista features were revealed long before they were announced in OSX. On the other hand, the full fledged implementation in OSX was out before Vista. So it is hard to say who did what. The truth is there are many ideas in computer science that are developed independently by different people at the same time.

When Microsoft first legitimized operating system based integrated desktop search back in 2003, it sounded like such a great idea that Apple jumpstarted its own efforts and was able to rush Spotlight to market as part of Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger" in 2005, a full year and a half before Vista. Too, companies like Google started shipping desktop search products to capitalize on Microsoft's tardy operating system and the huge installed base of XP users. That's what happens when you broadcast your plans and then don't follow through quickly, I guess.

Ahem, I never read that off the net, I just watched a slideshow that my uncle gave me which was played at some Silicon Valley A-Grade conference in which Gates and Hobs were both present and had a good laugh about it. Oh and it isn't a rip-off cause my uncle attended that conference.KingKrool said:Well, you've just revealed that you fall for whatever you read on the net.
