Well, Im not a MS fanatic, but I doubt very seriously they copied apple in offering a 'classic GUI'. And I say that in past tense because XP offers a Win2000 look. And there is only 7 months of difference between the release of XP and OS X. Not nearly the amount of time necessary for MS to see a concept ('classic gui') and copy it and actually have it work decently :-).

When Apple released OS X for the macintosh, they kept in support for the previous OS 9 and deemed it the 'Classic' environment. I was attempting (unsuccessfully it seems) to show that MS even copied Apple's name for its older environment in its new release
