"It was kind of a weird seduction visit where Steve sầu was saying we don't really need you & we're doing this great thing, và it's under the cover. He's in his Steve sầu Jobs sales mode, but kind of the sales mode that also says, 'I don't need you, but I might let you be involved,'" Gates later said.

Still, Gates appeared alongside Jobs in a 1983 video — a "Dating Game" riff — screened for Apple employees ahead of the Macintosh's launch. In that video, Gates compliments the Mac, saying that it "really captures people's imagination."

Microsoft and Apple worked hand-in-hand for the first few years of the Macintosh. At one point, Gates quipped that he had more people working on the Mac than Jobs did.

Their relationship, already kind of rocky, fell apart when Microsoft announced the first version of Windows in 1985. A furious Jobs accused Gates và Microsoft of ripping off the Macintosh. But Gates didn't care — he knew that graphical interfaces would be big, & didn't think Apple had the exclusive sầu rights to the idea.


Besides, Gates knew full well that Apple took the idea for the graphical interface from the Xerox PARC labs, a retìm kiếm institution they both admired.


When Jobs accused Gates of stealing the idea, he famously answered: "Well, Steve, I think there's more than one way of looking at it. I think it's more lượt thích we both had this rich neighbor named Xerox and I broke inkhổng lồ his house khổng lồ steal the TV mix & found out that you had already stolen it."

From there, the gloves were off between the two founders. "They just ripped us off completely, because Gates has no shame," Jobs once said. To which Gates replied: "If he believes that, he really has entered into lớn one of his own reality distortion fields."


Jobs thought that Gates was a stiông chồng in the mud, far too focused on business. "He’d be a broader guy if he had dropped acid once or gone off to an ashram when he was younger."
