Scratch is open source and many other environments have used that UI for coding. My son who is now 10 has been coding in Scratch for 3 or 4 years. It is a very easy to learn environment and it supports message passing, objects, variables, etc. He's learned some very high level concepts without knowing they are high level. Others have used the exact same UI because it is really very well thought out. No need to get upset, they want coding to be approachable.
