Despite Bill Gates protestations to the contrary, there are many who think that Vista owes much to both the current crop of Linux and Apple Os's.
Bill Gates seems to love to play loose and free with the truth...and just like a newspeak version of 'truth'.. he seems to think that the more he repeats his outrageous claims, the more people will accept them as gospel.
For example amongst the erroneous claims he made during an interview with Meredith Vieira of NBC. he stated...re Vista.....
that no other....
"....operating system has (n)ever had parental control features before..."
Obviously never tried or heard of parental controls in Linux or Mac.
He seems oblivious to the fact they have been available for these Os's for years..
Linux....has downloadbales such as Ipstables, dansguardian and squid.

Gates also said of Vista...
"Vista's the most advanced operating system for security ever done."
Can't wait for someone to drive a proverbial Mac ( or Linux ) truck through this bulldust..

So I ask......
Is Vista at heart, a copy~cat (me too!!!) Os..?
After all I am pretty sure that Vista has borrowed (ermm pinched) large chunks of stuff from Linux and OS X.
Tell me if I am wrong...
