You were my favorite megalomaniac.
Robert X. Cringely said it best: If Bill Gates were George H.W. Bush, Steve was Saddam Hussein. He didn't want to be a rich country-club boy: he wanted to rule the f'ing world.
That I can respect.
They'll pull my Mac out of my cold, dead fingers. I'd give up my Springfield M1911A1 .45 caliber first. The Mac is far more dangerous.
God had better watch out. Or Satan. Either way, inside of six months, Steve, you will be running the place.
Don't forget all the PeeCee weenies I converted to use a superior OS, Steve, after your Second Coming. Be it heaven or hell, I want a job in the hereafter.
You were insanely great--love you or hate you, or both--you changed the world.
