Windows won the war and outsold apple. Bill: altruistic philanthropist, spreading his wealth and hope everywhere. Both almost infamous for it. By Windows 2.0 Microsoft had further developed its GUI and by Windows 3.0. If you love to imagine the planet-exploding battles of the fictional gods who will never be, taking pointless knowledge gathered from a life spent reading and gaming and swinging it like a gladiator's sword in discussions on reddit... then welcome home, my friend. Can anyone show me the video that these pictures are from? Looks like you're using new Reddit on an old browser. You are indeed where you belong. Steve felt Bill stole his idea. It was reported to Steve that Microsoft was going to clone the Mac but Steve disregarded it because he didn't think they were capable of doing a decent implementation, he was correct. Apple argued effectively that all the modern components we understand to make up a "Desktop computer GUI", across OSX, Windows, Gnome, KDE were copyrightable and that the "look and feel" was Apple's intellectual property - which Microsoft infringed by making Windows 3.0 - a competing "Desktop Computer GUI". TIL Steve Jobs confronted Bill Gates after he announced Windows' GUI OS. Although I may give the edge to Steve. They did not work together. EDIT: Thanks to everyone pointing out that yes, Bill Gates was once an ass hole as well, but I meant more 'currently'. Bill Gates is a pretty cool dude, but Steve Job is/was like that kid in middle school that runs around wienie tapping everyone because he thinks it's funny. Please contact the moderators of this subreddit if you have any questions or concerns. Both almost infamous for it. "To get all linux news off the front page.". I knew both Bill Gates & Steve Jobs reasonably well back in the day. I'm leaning towards Torvalds. Do you mind elaborating a bit. Bill Gates and Steve Jobs had a love-hate relationship. Lets say that the aggressiveness in both cancels each other out. Thanks for your response. Hence this scene.

I'm thinking this comes down to Gates and Torvalds. He ran an anti-competitive monopoly and ruthlessly crushed any potentially innovative companies that would threaten Microsoft.

From the rules: Direct replies to the original post (aka "top-level comments") are for serious responses only. Oh well. The important difference between patenting "three round buttons of different colors in the top corner of a window" and "a button on the edge of a thing" is something the conceptually, seems to have been forgotten. Apple effectively claimed it had invented the GUI and that Microsoft had copied the look and feel of it in releasing Windows. How was Bill Gates sneaky? When did they work together and what exactly did Bill Gates do which screwed over Steve Jobs so much. Microsoft announces a mouse-based system GUI environment called Windows as well as a mouse-based option for Microsoft Word. I think it's more like we both had this rich neighbor named Xerox and I broke into his house to steal the TV set and found out that you had already stolen it. I'm going to say that Gates is a better athlete than all of them: Now Bill has 3inches on me height wise. This was not always the case. Press J to jump to the feed. Jobs goes apeshit and demands a meeting with Gates where it ends up being ten Mac employees on one side and Gates on the other. Neil would often ask questions about implementation details that he didn't really need to know about such as representation and implementation. Although I may give the edge to Steve. I don't know what that means for a physical confrontation..other than to say he's not going to be timid. They were competitors. Neil's version of Windows is released later and was good enough that Mac filed a copyright lawsuit against Microsoft in 1988, which Mac lost after the judge ruled Apple inadvertently gave Microsoft a perpetual license to the Mac user interface in November 1985. The court however felt that only individual specific elements (ie; the specific type of button, rather than the idea of a button) could be the kinds of things which were more important than "Look and Feel". Don't Panic! First, I feel that Steve(he was a shitty Buddhist to be honest, dude was a dick) and Linus are the most aggressive of the bunch. I'll leave it. Torvalds is Finnish, he could probably solo the other three and not get scratched. Getting himself into a class full of girls...sliding down a bannister face first. They were buying all kinds of shit from other companies like IBM and Xerox. **TL;DR: No, Bill and Steve never worked together, but worked on similar products at the same time. Seems like he was part nerd / part party animal to me. Xerox's GUI was never commercialised. use the following search parameters to narrow your results: subreddit:subreddit find submissions in "subreddit" author:username find submissions by "username" find … Lets say they are all in their physical prime ie. Jobs was clearly suffering from a hugely inflated ego. Xerox effectively had made a huge amount of progress on the idea of "GUIs" and both Microsoft and Apple borrowed heavily from the metaphors and ideas used in Xerox's offering (overlapping windows on a desktop with icons etc.) It could be easily argued that Microsoft held back the progress of the web at least a year, and by some measures even longer.

Apple had agreed to licence some parts of it's own GUI to Microsoft which Microsoft used for Windows 1.0. ", Microsoft had originally signed their agreement with Macintosh regarding mouse based software in 1981 and announced Windows in 1983, they were within their rights, Mac can't cut ties with Microsoft since they still needed Microsoft's apps for the Macintosh. Edit2: Also I know its portrayed that Bill Gates is a nerd compared to say his partner Steve Jobs, but lets take a look here for a moment:, Dude was pretty brazen. They all get swords. Even touch controls have been around since then. This is very similar to Apple's more recent lawsuits against Samsung (amongst others) claiming that touchscreen devices (of various types) copy the look and feel of their iPhones. Steve Jobs: "HE STOLE MY PROGRAMS N STUFFS!! Not sure what I was trying to say. In a large way GUIs are responsible for the idea of a 'personal computer' rather than a big mainframe that just crunches numbers all the time. Water skiing with a busted leg.
