Maybe they already committed the heist.

Windows is a knock-off of Apple's GUI using the desk-top analogy.

But Apple stole it first, from Xerox.

Seems Xerox allowed Steve Jobs to tour the plant way back when Jobs was playing with the prototype computer, made from parts, which became the first Apple. Jobs saw Xerox's Graphical User Interface and saw the future. The rest is history.

The difference between inspiration and theft in the Valley of Silicon gets blurry sometimes.
