Microsoft have disputed claims that Windows 7, the proposed follow up to Vista, is anything like the Macintosh system launched in 1991.
'For starters it won't run on a Mac (unless it's one of those dual boot things)' said CEO Steve Ballmer ' We are building an all-in one monitor and hard drive to house the new OS and are introducing a revolutionary development in interface technology - a one-button mouse. The OS itself will introduce features like file sharing, co-operative multitasking and virtual memory. Any accusation that we have just taken a 17 year old Apple Macintosh system and stuck on a Windows logo just to get away from the mess that is Vista, is plainly quite wrong.'
A lawyer from Apple was unavailable to write to us as he was too busy rubbing his hands with glee.
