    He may have (probably not) but AFAIK, he never actually worked on the programming aspect.

    Jobs was a design guy and Woz did most of the down and dirty stuff. Bill Gates was a programmer for sure.

    I thought Jobs had programmed Breakout for Atari?

    He had some programming ability but very limited.

    I can't imagine Jobs ever sitting down and taking the time to learn tbh.
