An evil bastard and CEO of Apple Computers.
is in the process of giving 85% of his fortunate to charity. Linus Torvalds
single-handedly invented Linux
, and made it free and open-source
. Jobs has done neither of these things.
When Jobs' own company, NeXt, failed miserably, he returned to Apple as CEO. At the time, several other companies were manufacturing MacOS
-compatible computers; Jobs revoked their licenses. He also put the kibosh on a project to develop a PC-compatible version of MacOS, the result of both of these actions being that if you want to use MacOS, you have to buy a Mac.
If it wasn't for Steve Jobs, more people would use MacOS because they wouldn't have to spend lots of money on a computer they can't modify and isn't compatible with lots of peripherals.
If I had a Death Note
, I would write 'Steve Jobs - death by diarrhoea' in it.
