Microsoft or COPYCAT

By the_big_one ·
Microft the world's largest software company aint it ???
But what the other side of mirror says:
Each and everything which Microsoft has released is a copy of some other less famous product.
Some examples:
Word from Word Star/ Word Perfect
Access from Foxpro
Win95 from Mac84
System Restore(the latest from WinME) is just the copy of Acer Time Machine Technology
There is nothing which is solely their.
The monoply is incresing day by day . . . .

What is your view.

Access was created by another company and MS bought the company and incorporated Access in to office instead of developing there own low end DB. This was not a copy of Foxpro.
