Bill Gates vs Steve Jobs; Stealing from a rich neighbor – Pirates of Silicon Valley

ไปเอามาเพราะ Bill Gates บอกว่า บุคลิกของตัวเขาในภาพยนตร์ Pirates of Silicon Valley แม่นยำสูงในระดับหนึ่ง (reasonably accurate) อ้างอิงจาก บิล เกตส์ ตอบคำถามผ่าน Reddit

แต่ @plynoi บอกว่าในหนังไม่โหดเท่าเหตุการณ์จริง ที่อ้างอิงจากหนังสือ Revolution in The Valley: The Insanely Great Story of How the Mac Was Made เขียนโดย Andy Hertzfeld ที่บอกว่าในเหตุการณ์จริง Bill Gates คนเดียว แต่มี Steve Jobs และรายล้อมด้วยทีมงานของ Apple

Steve Jobs: I obviously made a mistake. I made a mistake. I trusted. I believed. Family. Maybe a Mafia family. You turn your back, and you get whacked. Our guys come back from Japan with this NEC…. and it’s loaded with Microsoft programs. Your Microsoft programs. They’re almost identical to ours.

Bill Gates: There may be a few… similarities.

Steve Jobs: Similarities? Similarities? Try theft.

Bill Gates: Steve, all cars have steering wheels, but no one tries to claim that the steering wheel was their invention.

Steve Jobs: We have a contract, you and I. Well, you should read it more carefully.

Steve Jobs: What is this? This is like doing business with a praying mantis. You get seduced, and then eaten alive afterwards?

Bill Gates: Get real, would ya? You and I are both like guys who had this rich neighbor – Xerox – who left the door open all the time. And you go sneakin’ in to steal a TV set. Only when you get there, you realize that I got there first. I got the loot, Steve! And you’re yellin? “That’s not fair. I wanted to try to steal it first.” You’re too late.

Steve Jobs: We’re better than you are! We have better stuff.

Bill Gates: You don’t get it, Steve. That doesn’t matter!
