    This sounds like a somewhat concerned Bill Gates.

    Thanks for mentioning the article. There's no way I'd upgrade to Vista at the moment unless I had to test on that paltform. (The Treo challenges me enough at the moment!) Gates seemed more like he was spinning things, than downright concerned, but he definitely was annoyed, Mabye that mean he really is concerned. LOL on the part where he calls File->Edit and Help "innovations"!
    I'm both super! ... and a doer!

    If not concerned, he did sound (according to what was quoted in the article) more than just a little frustrated.

    are you implying he sold that as an innovation?
    The way I read it was that he was reminding us that that interface was invented by MS years ago and apple has been using it since...
    He used it as a point to make out that apple hasnt invented the world...

    Good point IMHO, like iPod, Apple didnt invent them, they just popularized them..
    portable MP3 players had been around for ages, apple just made them easy to use and 'cool'...

    While I like apple for its design and the way it markets things, it isnt as innovative as they pretend to be...

    (mmm never thought I'd agree with Gates )

    LOL, on the whole issue of squabbles between these two competitors and marketing accuracy . . . . . . .

    Pardon my skepticism. . . .

    Truth in Marketing? That left the world 40 years ago. . . . . .

    Truth in News? That left 20 years ago. . . as market share and profits became the driving force behind reporting and "first to market" . . . . . . . .

    Cheers, Perry.

    I believe everything that Bill Gates says.

    No. Wait. I believe everything that Steve Jobs says.


    No. Ummmm. Oh yeah. I believe it only after I see it on /.

    I don't want too sound cynical either but, those are two fairly valid points Perry.
