Microsoft copying SeaMonkey design?

therube on IRC pointed me to this picture today:



The top is "Microsoft Download Manager" (in Vista or Win7 design from what I can tell), the bottom is SeaMonkey's Download Manager (seems to be Windows Classic design, so prettiness can't be compared obviously).

I wonder if that "Microsoft Download Manager" thing is new or has been there for longer, but it looks like they pretty much did copy what has been there for a long time in the suite. :)

We have meanwhile taken the next steps, added a search filter, and done away with the confusing "the top toolbar only works on the selection in the tree" functionality, instead placing the most important actions as graphical mini-buttons into the tree itself. Let's see when they follow. ;-)
