    If he had never "dropped in" over at Xerox, he wouldn't have had the inventions that were much more important than fonts, since he stole the mouse and GUI (icons) from them.
    Windows copied Mac, but Mac copied many others, so it is hypocritical of him to only criticize Windows.

    Even after 8 years, I'm watching again and again. When I feel down this speech gives me the inspiration to start over again and follow my heart. I know steve you may never hear my voice but I wish you a peaceful place in heaven. :'(
