Sam Caughron lost a lot of my respect recently. He didn't invent app switching. Application switching has been in previous and various OSes by various companies. Sam didn't invent "the look" that he used for his app switcher, instead borrowing the "layered-on" look of things like volume and eject graphics from the OS.
I didn't agree with Dan Wood, and I don't agree with Sam. He's getting a lot of PR right now, but it's not good PR. I don't agree with the whole "any press is good press" ideology. Sam's a whiner. Instead of saying "hey, welcome aboard, now look at how our software extends on that cool new toy" he's pouting.
Update: You don't see Unsanity asking for "credit" for Labels X, do you?
