The interesting thing is, [Windows 7] is basically the next version of Vista… One of the things that people say an awful lot about the Apple Mac is that the OS is fantastic, that it’s very graphical and easy to use. What we’ve tried to do with Windows 7 – whether it’s traditional format or in a touch format – is create a Mac look and feel in terms of graphics.
Aldous, perhaps realizing that he might have just been a little too honest for a Microsoft employee, then added:
We’ve significantly improved the graphical user interface, but it’s built on that very stable core Vista technology, which is far more stable than the current Mac platform, for instance.
MacDailyNews Take: Proof that Windows 7ista, with its upside-down, and backwards Mac ripoff UI is “far more stable than the current Mac platform?” Nope, none given by the Microsoft flack. There never is.
Full interview here.
MacDailyNews Take: I’m a Mac and Windows 7 was my idea. Some things never change. What’s “new” in Microsoft’s latest version of Windows is often quite old in Apple Mac.
