Bill Gates did cooperate with Steve Jobs at one point. It helped them both greatly, although Bill Gates did go more in depth into computers than Jobs. "Bill is basically unimaginative and has never invented anything, which is why I think he’s more comfortable now in philanthropy than technology." Although they did work together, they were rivals, as you can see in this quote stated by Jobs. "Steve Jobs and Bill Gates have had many business dealings dating back to the 1977 release of the AppleSoft BASIC programming language. The name came from joining "Apple" and "Microsoft." Gates went on to program for the early Mac computers which led to disputes about how much of the Mac's features were "borrowed" by Windows." quotes <http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Did_Steve_Jobs_and_Bill_Gates_work_together>.When Bill Gates started Windows, it was said that he "borrowed" some of the Macintosh's features, as stated in this quote. When Steve did die, Gates was truly saddened. In this quote, he states: "I'm truly saddened to learn of Steve Jobs' death. Melinda and I extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends, and to everyone Steve has touched through his work. Steve and I first met nearly 30 years ago, and have been colleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more than half our lives. The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come. For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it's been an insanely great honor. I will miss Steve immensely."
