    That was a great article.

    I have read a bit about Vista...since I would need new PC to run it and a lot of it sounds like it was "inspired" by OS X. Especially Gadgets...the word is even a rip off Widgets....lol..

    To be fair, OS X isn't all that original itself...
    Apple and IBM also adopted the object oriented user interfaces pioneered by NeXT in Mac OS and OS/2 Warp. The two companies ultimately combined their efforts to create OpenDoc, a cross-platform object oriented framework, which enjoyed some success with the Cyberdog web browser and ClarisWorks.
    WebObjects never became very popular because of its initial high price of $50,000, but it also had an impact disproportionate to its popularity. Websites including Dell's online store, Disney, BBC News and the iTunes Store adopted the software to create dynamic webpages. Though WebObjects was not the first, it heralded the advent of popular dynamic websites and is now bundled with Mac OS X Server.
    NeXT's most notable impact on personal computer users came in the form of Mac OS X. Apple estimated that 10 million Mac users have moved to the OPENSTEP-based Mac OS X since by 2004. Mac OS X retains many of the user interface and technical elements of NeXTStep, including the Dock, object oriented file browser, the XNU microkernel and relative processor independence.
