Apple Didn't Steal From Xerox, Dammit!

With the release of Microsoft Vista today, the geek mind wanders to the orgins of the GUI for personal computers. This essay (click on the title - an interface guy would hate the fact that I have to mention that) by interface designer Bill Horn makes a strong case that Apple made up their own interface and Windows did the stealing. Enjoy, Pointdexter!

i never believed that junk anyways. Apple is an incredibly innovative company. I do not believe they have reason to steal!

Thank you for this wonderful article! i really enjoyed reading it. I actually forgot all about it but wondered about this for years now.

Thanks again
