Who would ever need more than $64k?

It was first signed by Mr. S. Sung, but Steve scribbled Sam's name out and wrote his own.

If you look at the back of the disk, in fine print it says "Developed by Xerox".

DID it at least include qa floppy Drive with a USB interface so they could see what's on it?

The dude was an incredible tool..I don't get the worship of someone that went out of their way to be
a total ass to other people like he did. His wife is a total coont too..And even after it's widely known
that he was an abusive, controlling, paranoid head case, there are still people clamoring to kiss his corpses ass. He didn't invent anything that saved humanity, he invented over priced, but aesthetically pleasing, boxes for electronic parts.

In the early days, they had 8 inch floppies on the word processors. Secretaries love them.

The tools are the ones who purchased the products, not him.

And the same tools are the ones that believes Apple invented stuff, like the smartphone, etc.

I'd think that would be the last place you'd want the name Microsoft.

Awful lot of hate for a guy that died several years ago.

You would think the man designed computers for Hitler or something.
