    lol

    kidding aside, the xerox corp could have crushed IBM and apple. just how IBM could have crushed windows with OS/2...in both cases the situation was poorly managed to say the least.

    when i saw said movie it increased my dislike of steve jobs. at the very beginning microsoft had NOTHING on apple...but gates bought DOS from some guy and paid $50,000. compared to what the writer would have made it he got a cut of the earnings, $50k was small potatoes (to say the least).
