Paul Thurrott from SuperSite for Windows complains Microsoft is turning Windows way too much into a Mac-like operating system where form is valued over function Thurrott states Windows 7 is turning into something that looks simple, but not easy. Here's a snip from the conclusion:
I could go on and on if I wanted, but I think you get the idea. Windows 7 basically takes Windows one step closer to the design aesthetic of the Mac, where form is valued over function.
