Microsoft - Rethink PC Designs

Vista Industrial Design Toolkit was shipped to more than 60 PC manufacturers hinting Microsoft's intention to ask those PC makers to rethink how they design their computer looks. Yes, Microsoft wants PC Makers to have good-looking boxes for their Vista launch!

The Vista Industrial Design Toolkit contains How-To on how PC Makers should design their boxes to accommodate the user interface style of Vista. I have the feeling that Microsoft felt threatened by Apple's recent success in luring more users to their computers that recently switched to Intel CPUs making Apple computers Windows Compatible.

I think Microsoft should worry about their own product instead of worrying about others. Vista has been delayed more than once, and who knows when it will be actually released.
