Bill Gates Responds To All The Potshots Steve Jobs Took At Him In His Bio

Bill Gates was on ABC’s Sunday news show “This Week,” and responded (we think for the first time) to Steve Jobs’ posthumous criticisms that appeared in the Walter Isaacson biography.

Gates took the high road, and simply said, “I respect Steve, we got to work together. We spurred each other on, even as competitors. None of that bothers me at all.”

He also said that because Microsoft was selling more products it made Jobs feel “beleaguered” and, “he felt like he was the good guy and we were the bad guys,” but Gates said, it was “very understandable.”

The stuff on Steve Jobs starts around 6:50.
