Win2K came from NeXTStep?

What's the BZ#? I'll vote for it. I don't mind seeing OS X-specific
additions as long as Apple comes through on their end and co-markets or
does something else to return the favor, but Win-specific things are at
least as critical; in terms of marketshare, about an order of magnitude

In a chat several weeks ago Kevin mentioned some plans to do cool stuff
with Vista. That's nifty and all, but won't do a thing for my sales
for more than a year.
I sure would like to see Windows given the respect it deserves in terms
of appearance details....
