Gates and Jobs

  • Thursday, May 31 2007

Engadget has a nice overview of the recent interview with Bill Gates and Steve Jobs.

(This got over shadowed a bit by the ColdFusion 8 launch!) :)

There are some great moments in the interview - talking about transferring data around on cassette tapes, 128k or memory, the GUI vs. DOS interfaces., Lotus 1-2-3... This video cuts off mid-way but I did discover the complete interview is available at D5 AllThingsD.

Great memories - and if you weren't around in those golden days of personal computers I'd check it out - it is amazing how much has changed in 20 years!

I think it would have been interesting if they had included Linus Torvalds. And yes - they do discuss the TV ads...
