Why does Microsoft ripoff other companies' products like what China is doing to the US?

Windows UI is Mac ripoff
PowerBI is Tableau ripoff
Teams is Slack ripoff
Cosmos is MongoDB ripoff (they even have same API)
Event Hub is Kafka ripoff
C# is Java ripoff

      Old Microsoft. Apparently new Microsoft (after Satya) seems to be surprisingly pretty good.

    And Mac is a Xerox ripoff and Java is a ripoff of C and so on. Ideas build on each other. These are not direct replicas. They have different implementations, features and focus areas. Boring discussion.

    Competition is good so someone can say that our product is better than product X and increase innovation due to competition

    They’re literally copy pasting others ideas and using their foot print in corporates. No innovation and shifty work culture

      And the cloud is nothing more than a Colo with virtualization on steroids... in today's tech, almost everything has been discovered, but the main goal is to improve upon it, sometimes "improvement" is not "better" but rather greater marketability.

      That's where the steroids lie... it's a fucking Colo with modern technology. We have data centers, we rent the shit. Colo rented hardware... with virtualization we can rent at the compute level... same shit better tech.and BTW without us sellers "breaking it down" to terms where people with cash want to buy, cloud would not be what it is today.
