Jobs v. Gates

Was it all just friendly rivalry?

Steve Jobs on Bill Gates:
"He really never knew much about technology, but he had an amazing instinct for what works."

Bill Gates on Steve Jobs:
"What I can't figure out is why he is even trying (to be the CEO of Apple)? He knows he can't win."

Jobs on Gates:
"Bill is basically unimaginative and has never invented anything, which is why I think he's more comfortable now in philanthropy than technology. He just shamelessly ripped off other people's ideas."

Gates on Jobs:
"He faced, several times at Apple, the fact that their products were so premium priced that they literally might not stay in the marketplace. So the fact that we were succeeding with high volume products, you know, including a range of prices, because of the way we worked with multiple companies, it's tough."

Watch how it all began and ended.
