Jobs' as dead as that crab meat, Gates is alive and breathing. You gonna line up with a dead man, Jimbo?

Neither, so long as I am free to do whatever I like on whatever computer I am using.

I respect Gates more NOW than I ever did Jobs. Gates knows he pulled some scumbag moves but that's how commercialism works. At least now he's one of the biggest philanthropists in the world. Jobs always seemed like too much of a 1 track pony jerk to me.

If Steve Jobs was so great, he wouldn't be dead.

Steve Jobs was an awful person who refused to pay child support.

Maybe it's a yearning for ye goode olde days, but Ballmer makes me miss Gates, a lot.

Gates did a lot of bad things, but most of those only had secondary effects on the end users--he mostly bullied other companies. Ballmer does less of those because of antitrust lawsuits in the EU, but MS's decisions under him affects the end user more directly.

Jobs... well, I'm not enough of an Apple user to care.

Wasn't this in the new Jobs movie or the 1995 TV movie?
