Many have argued whether whose philosophy was superior. Steve Jobs believed in offering one piece of hardware and software, while Bill Gates believed that software coupled different hardware for each specific person was a better route. At first, Mr. Gates and Microsoft boomed and became the most powerful software company in the world. As of late, Apple has caught up and even surpassed Microsoft in sales. So this begs the question, who was right? First off, I would like to say that I am not a fanboy of one or the either, but I side with Steve Jobs. Mac computers are as beautiful on the outside as they are on in the inside. The operating system is more intuitive and "just works." Virus' aren't much of a problem as they are on a Microsoft computer and their resale value far exceeds its counterpart.
Who do you think was right?
