Things are changing over at Microsoft: Microsoft interfaces on new apps look great, and it is getting rid of old dogmas, opening up software to a wide range of platforms. At the same time, Apple (while still great) is taking the foot of the gas here and there.
Personally I am still a big Apple fan and will continue using their products. (Although I am one of the unlucky people who bought a Mac Book where the screen is completely peeling of, visit www.staingate.com to sign up for the petition if you suffer from this as well). But it is good to see that Microsoft is trying to compete.
