Hmm, Microsoft retail stores...
Is it me, or are they copying another company who have had stores for a long time? ;)

Much as I dislike Microsoft, and hate to defend them, bluescreens are no longer an issue. In 4 anda half years of my (now replaced) XP machine, I only ever got a handful of bluescreens, and they always come from one of three places: bad drivers, failing hardware, and doing stuff you shouldn't, by which I mean stuff like installing alpha drivers for hardware (including one to give you direct access to disks to try and get some old DOS data recovery tools running), and hotplugging IDE drives (Windows does not like this :>).

Vista got a bad rep for bluescreens because when it came out the drivers were terrible, and led to a lot of problems for people, but since then, there haven't been many problems. Two of the guys I work with have been using Windows 7 for the past 4 months or so (Beta->RC->RTM), and haven't had a single bluescreen on it in that time, which got an OS in the testing phase is pretty good.

If you take a look at Apple's history, they've 'copied' a good deal of stuff, including the idea to have a GUI (Xerox got their first), and the dock they like to boast so much about (NeXT and Sun Microsystems). Hell, the only way they got anything as stable as they have is by 'copying' a BSD core.

From the article, all it really says is that Microsoft is planning to open stores to sell its products, and you say this is 'copying' Apple? Were they the first people to ever have the idea of opening a shop to sell goods? Why exactly is it 'copying' for a massive, multinational company to decide to start selling directly, rather than through other stores?
