Do not forget Apple. They use a very similar approach too. You dont want to imply that an idea becomes bad if MS uses it? (Btw they dont stick to that a lot..<nobr> <wbr></nobr>.they use a very user unfriendly Registry<nobr> <wbr></nobr>... they have a problem to cope with programs that install not in<nobr> <wbr></nobr>/program files but instead insist on installing to "/Programme", which happened for me several times...)
