Brilliant, I think Alvin Hall is hilarious (I don't know if he's meant to be) this should be the oddest show ever

Who is really better though? I mean the Steve's and Apple basically started it all. Then they shot themselfs in the foot. Bill took it to glory, and now they are both successful for different reasons.

No biggy, but I predict Alvin the man will come down on the side of Bill Gates. He basically earnt his fortune buying Microsoft shares when Billy boy first set out in business.

In terms of innovation then you couldnt even have Gates in the same room as Jobs.

In terms of seeing an opportunity and running with it over the long term and maximising profits for his company, Gates is the prima donna.

From what I read, Jobs was a bit of a **** in his younger days at Apple, and would probably be the megalomaniac that Gates is now.

Apple is now famous for good things, MS is infamous for loads of bad things, blahsy blahsy blah.

Who cares as long as Apple still keeps going where they are heading
