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

deemed it the 'Classic' environment.
Bet you a steak dinner the name will change before release.

Oh. Good thing, cause I had remembered an even earlier case of 'classic GUI' that MS had done. When I went from NT 3.51 to NT 4.0, I could not stand the win95 interface at first. Eventually, someone showed me how to make it 'classic' in that the gooey became win3.x, which was the gooey of NT prior to 4.0.
