Fun history for Holidays Post, I have seen "Pirates of Silicon Valley" movie and knew the long Saga of how Bill Gates sold absolutely nothing (He CLAIMED to have a "Disc Operating System/DOS"), but he had NOTHING. He also had IBM pen an agreement that MICROSOFT was to retain rights to the SOFTWARE AND DRIVE SYSTEM, and also had NOTHING at the time the deal was done. They then piled in a car and drove to some guy in some state that claimed to have a working operating system and offered him $50000 for it. The guy signs over his rights for that price and microsoft was born. It was xerox who actually developed windows first, but then IBM made Microsoft "evaluate" xerox software, and they copied it all and changed it a bit and called it their own. Apple was doing the same thing, and Bill gates formed an Evil friendship with Steve Jobs. Microsoft had pure access to all IBM computers being sold, and so it was his inferior version of windows that beat out the betamax version. Steve Jobs drove his employees to the max, and basically tortured them, encouraging marathon work sessions like 30+ hours straight. Steve Jobs abused his girlfriend, and despite his wealth ignored his daughter for the first six years of her life, and then he used his wealth to take custody. Steve Jobs was an ass. He sure did come up with some great new technologies though. Spoiler alert these are clips in the movie about Bill Gates battle with Steve Jobs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9nfgRf2A0Tc [video=youtube;9nfgRf2A0Tc]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9nfgRf2A0Tc[/video] and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLZLl3eHdzQ Then this. (The one in middle is more storyline of true story. History). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2GEDy042iNM [video=youtube;2GEDy042iNM]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2GEDy042iNM[/video] I think the history of how our PC/MAC's came into being is worth knowing. I think the entire movie is on youtube, but unsure.
