On August 6, 1997 Bill Gates appeared, like the Wizard of Oz, at a Steve Jobs keynote. The occasion? Gates had just made a $150 million investment in Apple in order to pull the company out of the mess it had fallen into during the 1990s. What did Microsoft get? MS Office on Mac for five years and Internet Explorer as default. Apple also agreed to ignore all those pesky desktop patent lawsuits.
As you watch this video you’ll notice:
1. Jobs started wearing turtlenecks because he had horrible fashion sense.
2. Bill Gates buys his shirts too big.
3. We were all so young then. So young and innocent.
