    Default Bill Gates Response To Steve Jobs On Windows Rip-Off Claim




    As Steve Jobs biography went on sale from today, Fortune magazine has got an exclusive reprint rights of part of the biography where the relationship between Steve Jobs and Bill Gates was discussed. In that, following is the situation when Steve Jobs came to know that Bill Gates at Microsoft is developing a competing OS and Bill Gates visits Apple’s campus to talk with Steve as per his request.

    Their meeting was in Jobs’s conference room, where Gates found himself surrounded by ten Apple employees who were eager to watch their boss assail him. Jobs didn’t disappoint his troops. “You’re ripping us off!” he shouted. “I trusted you, and now you’re stealing from us!” Gates just sat there coolly, looking Steve in the eye, before hurling back, in his squeaky voice, what became a classic zinger. “Well, Steve, I think there’s more than one way of looking at it. I think it’s more like we both had this rich neighbor named Xerox and I broke into his house to steal the TV set and found out that you had already stolen it.”

    We know that Jobs was an embittered, psycho-delusional Hitler. Drawing light on that facet of him, after his death, does nothing but demean a great man. Can't we focus on his positive qualities?

    Yet just before he died, he called Gates to his house and bedside, and had a long personal discussion with him.
    I believe that they respected one another a whole lot, and that they finally parted as friends.
