    > i thought the common lore was the Windows copied mac??

    And Mac copied Xerox... We all know the story.


    edit: It's all just building on other things... If you want to get down to brass tacks, we're all just "copying" Charles Babbage.

    windows copied x-windows? really?

    i can remember using xfree86 back before version 4 was out, and imho the quality was really bad in comparison to windows. xfree86 4 and above really helped it out.

    Although Microsoft's operating systems crash very easy and have infinate number of errors.
    It's still very easy to everyone.

    why does ms Vs linux always come up??

    Bah

    MS Vs LInux, it dont make no sense, i don't see how anyone could even compare them, they both have different target audiences so both with have different strengths and weaknesses.
