OTOH, you do see Micr0$0ft doing everything they can to imitate Apple.

I was at Valley Fair mall the other day. Micr0$0ft is apparently building a
new store directly across from the Apple store there. They have gone to
the trouble and expense of covering the "under construction" paneling
with a full-color mural touting this fact, including employees dressed in
brightly colored Apple-store-like T-shirts sporting name badges identical
to those worn by the employees in the Apple store.

I wonder if Micr0$0ft is going to develop a Zune cash register, too?
