    No- and I don't think I would want to TBH. He sounds like a real jerk. I just like his computers. ;)

    Nope, but given the chance between Bill and Steve, I would pick Gates.

    I've heard stories.

    There was one where he was in a busy elevator at the Apple headquarters and some employees didn't realize he was there so they were cracking jokes so he fired them on the spot.

    Maybe we should change this thread to - have you ever met Steve Jobs, or heard interesting stories about him?

    I agree. He looks really pompous. Especially how he always tries to be cool with his turtle neck and jeans.

    Whoah, that's a bit harsh. He should get off of his high-horse. Also, this is stupid, who wouldn't recognise Jobs??
    Gates seems like such a nice man, and Steve a massive tycoon. Maybe because Gates donates a lot to charity.. And wears more nerdy clothes :p

    That's just a story I heard - it's not confirmed. :)

    I was walking behind a guy one night in Palo Alto on University Ave who looks exactly like Steve Jobs. I was a bit far behind so I can't confirm, plus he's wearing a flannel shirt.

    That's my "close encounter of the Steve kind". ;)

    Never met Steve, but I do have to agree with what has been written here. Nearly all news about him is negative except for his saving Apple and his products. Anything to do with his personal life or attitude seems to have a negative light to it. Parking in a handicap spot, not having a license plate on his car, demolishing a historic landmark house (not that I care), stories of firing like mentioned before, his stern relations with companies regarding conforming to apples protocols or wishes, etc.

    But thats probably why he is so successful.

    As said before, between Steve and Bill, I would probably want to meet Steve. I did run into Mr. Gates one time at the University of Washington Medical Center. Seemed like a normal guy, so much I was wondering if it was even him.

    Tool tool tool tool tool!
    No style either. The anti of fashionable. The worst of worst bosses. The biggest prick in the bush. And the reason Apple's stock is going to fall soon.
