Who's More Powerful?

The BBC will be airing a program comparing Bill Gates to Steve Jobs and their influence in this world. Airing Thursday evening, the show will explore how "Bill Gates heads the biggest software, services and Internet technologies company in the world," and how "Steve Jobs predicted the personal computer revolution and made it happen."

So who is the most powerful in the world of computing? Here are a few of each one's accomplishments.

Bill Gates:
- Co-founded Microsoft in 1975 and served as CEO until 2000
- Licensed software so that earnings could rise in proportion to the number of users
- Donated billions of dollars to charity
- A spoof Internet report proclaimed that Gates had been shot, the report subsequently sent the Korean stock market down $3billion
- Around 90% of world's computers run on Windows

Steve Jobs:
- Ran his first business from his garage with Steve Wozniak
- Built Apple up by delivering user-friendly personal computers
- After being forced to leave Apple, returned to salvage the company a decade later
- Built up Pixar Studios, which is responsible for Finding Nemo, A Bug's Life and Toy Story films
- Lead Apple to become the largest Internet music business

It look s clear to me...
