To put some things into perspective... Apple copied some stuff from Microsoft Windows as well, for example tabs, which appeared in Windows 95 first -- or even in some Windows 3.x apps -- and then later in Mac OS 8. The whole concept of ExposŽ is said to have been researched in Microsoft before Panther (but this might be as well an overstatement... or the case of parallel research on similar topics).

And while Microsoft might've started on a wrong foot, some human-computer interaction experts believe now that Microsoft innovates in GUI and UI fields much more than Apple. For example, you can routinely see many Microsoft employees at the biggest conferences in the field, while Apple people are sadly absent. Also, the whole Mac OS X is considered very conservative, and dock the biggest GUI blunder in ages.
