Unacceptable Behavior: Microsoft Edition

Microsoft China rips off Asia’s No. 1 Microblogging Service « Plurk Labs:

“Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but blatant theft of code, design, and UI elements is just not cool, especially when the infringing party is the biggest software company in the world. Yes, we’re talking about Microsoft. Blerg.”

What the hell is happening here?

MicroSoft, as much I personally may hate them, has to have dozens and dozens of at least competent programmers.

There is zero reason for them to entirely rip off UI AND CODE from a much smaller company.

This is blatantly unacceptable behavior. Though, historically, this is the way MicroSoft operates.
