Triump of the nerds
Recently i watched this aweson inspirational documentary about how Bill gates,steve jobs etc revolutionised computing world.It is a must watch for programmers like us.
I downloaded from pirate bay.After watching the documentary I have come to realise Steve jobs is more innovative and brought revolution to computing history before Bill Gates.Bill gates stole the idea from Steve jobs and enhanced it.
Steve jobs was the first man to bring GUI to Pcs,Gates stole the idea and made Windows.Even on the documentart it says
"good artists copy,great artist steal"
No! Really? Gates stole all of his ideas? That's a dirty LIE!
Please note the complete sarcasm of this post, blockhead.
Why do you think everybody knocks on Microsoft about being an uninnovative organisation. Everybody knows that when Microsoft sees a threat to its business, or an app that they think they need/want they simply buy it, and then reprogram it into uselessness. The first ten years of Microsofts existence saw it grow exponentially, while producing nothing.
b.t.w. GUIs first saw the light at Xerox Palo Alto; they were developing SmallTalk at the moment and they also developed the mouse pointing device and windows and the entire shebang with it. All was originally stolen from them.
Thread moved to more appropriate forum.
i know the title of this, something like "Pirates of Silicon Valley", is it?
the GUI (and of course the mouse) came from Xerox, but was rejected by a company where Xerox was supposed to sell it. Gates, et. al. took the opportunity to buy it.
bu before this, they bought DOS from someone (who doesn't have a machine). Gates have the machine but didn't had the OS..
that's the story..
