Comment on "Mac OS X is Six Years Old Today"
by Paul — Mar 25
I'd have to agree with scott here. I don't think we saw any of these sorts of elements in mass until after Mac OS X was introduced to the world, at least I didn't notice any of this until after Mac OS X came into being.

Designers were doing all those things in Photoshop years before OS X came out or before the Aqua look was introduced (MWSF 2000, I think?). You just didn't notice it because you weren't looking.

That's a fairly common fallacy in the Apple world - nothing exists until Apple shows it, and then everybody else is suddenly just following... (A recent example is how the LG/Prada touchscreen phone was called an iPhone rip-off, even though it was introduced several months before the iPhone.)
