BusinessWeek says we’re copying Microsoft

See this review of Leopard where chief reviewer Snacky McSnackerson (shurely not, Ed.) alleges our new Leopard system copies ideas from Windows. Egads. Does anyone edit this stuff or at least kind of check to make sure it has some bearing on reality? Money quote: The art of writing software involves a lot of borrowing from the work of others. Everyone does it, but Apple is the master. Over the years, it has taken the best ideas from Windows and other programs and made them better. The latest result of this process is the new Leopard version of Mac OS X, which strengthens Apple’s claim to have the best consumer computer.

I just showed this to Katie and she says BusinessWeek is now definitely off our Christmas list. All of PR has been instructed not to return their calls.
