I Am Skooter
So here's us, on the raggedy edge.

Steve Jobs on Microsoft

Today’s Cringely column talks about YouTube and copyright, and references one of my favourite clips from Triumph of the Nerds:

Steve Jobs: The only problem with Microsoft is they just have no taste, they have absolutely no taste, and what that means is — I don’t mean that in a small way I mean that in a big way. In the sense that they don’t think of original ideas and they don’t bring much culture into their products. And you say why is that important — well you know proportionally spaced fonts come from type setting and beautiful books, that’s where one gets the idea — if it weren’t for the Mac they would never have that in their products and so I guess I am saddened, not by Microsoft’s success — I have no problem with their success, they’ve earned their success for the most part. I have a problem with the fact that they just make really third rate products.

Of course it’s available on YouTube.
