A photograph of Bill Flora, one of the key members of the team that built the new Metro User Interface, is now prompting some people to draw interesting inferences.
The photo shows Bill Flora sitting before a laptop and a screen that both belong to Mac. When you have a closer look at Mr. Flora's desk, you will find that the bespectacled, semi-bald man with disheveled hair is using Apple products to design the new Windows 8. An Apple Cinema Display, an Apple Bluetooth keyboard, a MacBook Pro, and what seems like a Magic Mouse are the things that he is making use of.
Well, Mr. Flora's taste in hardware seems impressive. However, the irony of the whole situation is quite apparent and hard to ignore. A man who is using his ingenuity for designing the most eagerly awaited operating system from Microsoft is surrounded by all the top products of a rival brand.
