Bill Gates takes credit for creating the Mac

Posted on Wednesday, November 02 2011 @ 21:23:37 CET by

ComputerWorld reports Bill Gates responds to criticism about him in the new Steve Jobs biography by pointing out that he helped Apple create the Mac:
In the biography, Jobs called Gates "unimaginative," "fundamentally odd" and "weirdly flawed as a human being." He also said, "He'd be a broader guy if he had dropped acid once or gone off to an ashram when he was younger."


When Amanpour asked what he felt about the criticism, Gates started off his answer this way:

"Well, Steve and I worked together, creating the Mac. We [Microsoft] had more people on it, did the key software for it."
The article doesn't go into detail on how Gates helped Jobs with the Mac but perhaps it's interesting to point out that Microsoft software like Word and Excel were available on the Mac years before being launched for Windows.
