Daddy, Where Did Windows 7 Come From?

This from the Windows Blog: “An inaccurate quote has been floating around the Internet about Windows 7"

Microsoft Developer

This from the Windows Blog: "An inaccurate quote has been floating around the Internet today about the design origins of Windows 7 and whether its look and feel was "borrowed" from Mac OS X.

Unfortunately this came from a Microsoft employee who was not involved in any aspect of designing Windows 7.

I hate to say this about one of our own, but his comments were inaccurate and uninformed.

If you're interested in learning more about the design of Windows 7, I suggest reading this AP story with Julie Larson-Green as well as these WSJ (membership required) and Fast Company articles.

 And here is one of many blog posts on the E7 blog discussing the design process of Windows 7."
