Steve Jobs and Bill Gates greet each other as they walk on stage at D5

In their rare joint appearance at All Things Digital 5, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates discuss their contributions to the technology industry, the qualities they most respect in one another.

To create a new standard, it takes something that’s not just a little bit different, it takes something that’s really new and really captures people’s imagination and the Macintosh, of all the machines I’ve ever seen, is the only one that meets that standard.”
Microsoft founder Bill Gates, 1984

Steve Jobs, 1996
