Gates: I helped Jobs create the Mac

Written by Nedim Hadzic

Damn you Bill, damn you to hell

Although the late Apple messiah Steve Jobs’ biography had quite a few harsh things to say about Bill Gates, the latter responded quite well and also took some credit for Apple’s Mac in his latest interview.

Namely, Jobs said gates was unimaginative, odd and weirdly flawed. He also said that Gates would have been “a broader guy” if he had done some drugs or gone to a spiritual hermitage.

In an interview on ABC’s “This Week”, Gates refused to slag off a dead man and said that it’s not surprise that Jobs lashed out at him, given how Apple had serious financial troubles at times. Gates said: "Well, Steve and I worked together, creating the Mac. We [Microsoft] had more people on it, did the key software for it."

Gates pointed out that Jobs felt “beleaguered” at times, as he felt that he was the good guy while Microsoft were the bad guys. We guess he was talking along the lines of how Nickleback makes Coldplay look good.

Love that last line. Nickelback makes just about any band seem good.

Well the difference is the so-called Messiah is dead where the other one is still alive. Guess who won?

I used to hate Microsoft, and it was justified too, because they were ruthless in business, and broke quite a few laws along the way. I no longer hate them, as their market power has been reeled in quite a bit. That does not excuse their past behavior, but at least Bill Gates is making some amends by doing great charity work with his foundation. Jobs was more enigmatic, but also more self absorbed. In the end, I think that Gates is leaving a more lasting and positive mark on the world. Bringing clean water and eradicating diseases in 3rd world countries seems a loftier goal than squeezing more features into a smartphone.

Because of Gates we have Windows. When Gates dies people will be talking about him for months.

IDK if a person is dead. What he gonna do? Strangle me? This shows that Gate never wanted to lash the competition but rather compete. Unlike the "other" company.
