So just how similar are Windows 10 and OS X 10.10 Yosemite?

My immediate takeaway from Tuesday’s Windows 10 Preview event was “Wow, this looks a lot like OS X.” I say that not with any judgment — just as an observation.

Apple released the OS X Yosemite GM candidate on Tuesday.

GM, or golden master, refers to the final copy of a piece of software that is ready for a public release. The GM candidate build will likely be one of the last releases before Yosemite is officially unveiled to the public.

Apple announced Yosemite at WWDC, and the new version of the OS includes a brand new look and feel, as well as slew of new features.

Other features include a redesigned Spotlight, a brand new version of iTunes and major enhancements to the Messages app. Read more…
