    Doesn't look anything like the Ubuntu logo. The only similarity is where the "dots" are there is a circle. And that dots aren't even true dots as they are connected with the lines...

    ^ Yes that is the worlds worst CSS.And, that does not look like an Ubuntu logo whatsoever, and even if it does, why would Microsoft even WANT to copy it? Don't they look DOWN on Linux?
