About time Apple copies Microsoft! Xcode copies some good features from Visual Studio

Apples XcodeA week ago Apple released a new version of their IDE xCode.  The write up is awesome, great to see they took some great ideas from Microsoft's Visual Studio!

Apples Xcode

Apple finally updated their main development platform, Xcode with a version 4 release earlier this month at WWDC.  The cool thing for Apple, well, more specifically iPhone developers, is they can enjoy some "new" features which some of them were already enjoying in Visual Studio.  Nice to see Apple "borrowing" some things from Microsoft. :>  It seems like the BIGGEST feature presented in the AppleInsider article is the Single window IDE.  Having multiple windows open was something MS figure out was bad for business with VB in the mid 90s.  And Code Completion?  WOW!  Very cool guys, oh, and it's called Intellisense, or is that copyrighted?  hhmmmm?

(Yes, there is a bit of tongue in cheek on this post for my iPhone developing friends LOL)
