Thread: WSJ: Microsoft Employees Love The iPhone

  1. #21
    I'm some what confused either I missed this or it wasn't mentioned but IBM made the first PC not Bill Gates. I am not stating anything about when Apple made theres because IBM and Apple were in competition in the old days. Bill Gates made the microsoft DOS operationg system and later made windows. Apple made its own version of DOS. There was at least one other DOS version which was called PC DOS but it never took over Micrrosoft was always on top with there DOS. All computers in the old days were way over priced and didn't really do much wether they were Apple or IBM. The PC took off after the first clones came out which had RAM of 640KB versus APPLE II and IBM which had 28kb and 48kb respectively. Once the clones came out everything changed. Believe me I was there. In the old days programs and games came on floppy disks not DVD's and CD's as there do today. I have been into computers since the early 80's. My first comupter was a comamdore 64.

    thats all and good, but it was an attempt at a joke. nn an essay response

The unix kernel makes macs virtually virus free. its all rumors cooked up by windows users to counter argue our point we don't get viruses. and don't say virus programers don't target mac because they aren't as big well i know for a fact there are people trying hard to be the first because 1 its a challenge and 2 the want to shut us up but they have failed. now i suggest you learn some history and grab some linux software-they use the unix kernel and have a tightlocked system that basicly makes sure all applications you download are virus free because its downloaded through the manager. and have a nice day good bye
    actually let me get you off your high horse. Yes i'm butting in. I stopped reading after your first few sentences because you exposed how little you knew. Computers were first used by scientists and researchers. The first electronic computer was made at Iowa university back in the 1930's and it ran off vacuums. Then came The ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer), in 1943. It is widely regarded as the first functionally useful electronic general-purpose computer. You're the only one sounding like a fanboy and a rude fanboy that doesn't know what he's talking about.

    wait. i think you meant to say "jobs wishes he invented windows" Last time i checked Gates was the 2nd richest man in the world. jobs ranks far behind at #136. Anyone with a brain knows who they would rather be.
