Microsoft e-mails reveal MacOS X envy

By hthth     Jan 26, 2007 in Technology
A series of emails between Microsoft developers in June 2004 has revealed how impressed they were by the new Tiger operating system that Apple had just previewed.
Many have seen the infamous video where the video from a Vista presentation had been replaced with a screenview of the MacOS X interface but the original audio describing Vista's new features was left unaltered. Needless to say, every feature mentioned as part of the VIsta were already present in OS X, and had been there for years.
Now emails that have been submitted as evidence in a (non-Apple related) lawsuit against Microsoft show how impressed Microsoft developers were with MacOS X when it debuted. The emails focus primarily on Mac's search system 'Spotlight'.
