Victorious release, rapid fame and universal acceptance of Windows 7 must've set a smirk on the faces of Microsoft workers. Sometimes, surplus joy makes mistake. Simon Aldous, partner faction manager, Microsoft, in a meeting with PCR told that Windows 7 draws some appear and feel deductions from Mac OS X. Yes, Aldous did end up with his foot in mouth after the interview got published online.

Windows 7 is consistent to work on diversity of hardware configurations. On the other hand, Mac OS X Snow Leopard has been optimized to work on precise configurations. The look and sense of both new operating systems may not have close or faint likeness to an average user. However, Aldous astoundingly said, "What we've tried to do with Windows 7 - whether it's customary format or in a touch format - is create a Mac look and feel in terms of graphics."
