Microsoft gives up trying and starts blatantly copying… John Gruber just made quite an interesting post/find on his site about how Microsoft has straight copied Apple’s Workgroup Manager Icon. Here’s a screenshot of Microsoft’s page with the icon: The page this is on is here (click the Buy Now button). Then check out the icon on Apple’s OS X Server page (towards the bottom). This is way more than “inspiration” here. This is some kid at Microsoft going to the Apple site, saving the image to the Microsoft server, and then bragging to his boss that he just whipped up the icon. Pathetic. UPDATE: It would seem Microsoft have swapped out the icon…what a surprise. ________________________ Source: Microsoft gives up trying and starts blatantly copying… at The Apple Blog I know this should have been in the 'News' section but such topics usually spark off a debate, therefore, I posted it here. Mods, please move it if it is inappropriate. As for the Microsoft defenders, what have you to say? Copying features from an operating system is one thing, but ripping off your opponents icons! Sheesh!
