    Does anyone know the name of the movie that came out several years ago about Jobs/Gates? I remeber that there was a movie about the rivals, but I never got a chance to watch it and now have forgotten the name of it. My wife wants to learn more about Apple, since I've forced her to "Switch" by buying her an iMac. I think she's cought the bug, and is really getting into her new Mac. Now she want's to know why Microsucks has a monopoly on the industry. I thought that the movie would be a good way for her to see how it all started.
    Please let me know if anyone can remember.

    Great film, if not for some paranoia Mac OS would have been the dominate player in the hardware & software industry. Just thought I could dream! :)

    I've never seen The Pirates of Silicon Valley, but I think that I might want to see it. Is it any good?

    I liked the part when Jobs walked into a job interview for a prospective Apple employee. He put his bare-feet up on the table and asked the guy if he was a virgin. Straight out. The guy stammers and Jobs tears him a new ****** saying he looked like an IBM type, he didn't belong there. Unbelievable. :p

    Wozniak himself maintains that except for very minor details (specific dates, etc) it's very accurate.

    Part of his website is devoted to answering questions about it--
