Well, I just saw this movie, and all I can say is that if Steve Jobs was half as smug, pompous, and arrogant in real life as he was in this movie, then he deserved to be screwed by Microsoft. Hell, I was hating Steve Jobs so much that I was actually cheering Bill Gates for putting that little prick in his place. :explode

PoSV is one of the best TV movies ever made. :love
It's dramatized a lot, of course, but in a lot of ways, that's how all those guys really acted. Jobs was taking the role of visionary too seriously and thought that because he was "cutting edge," everyone would love Apple because of it.
Anthony Michael Hall is awesome as Bill Gates, though. :)

I like that movie because I ate a pizza sub while watching it.

Bill Gates once called display driver software I wrote 'Cool'. :)

My uncle had dinner meetings at Gates' mountain house back when he was still the CEO of Nortel. :O
I'm happy, too, because the company I've been at for the last 4 months wants to hire me for the next work term. I was out-performing over a third of the full-time developers, which is wicked for someone with no experience. :picklehat
