A Letter Worth Noting

March 13th, 2012

We stumbled across a piece of history the other day, thanks to Letters of Note. It’s a letter from Bill Gates to Apple’s 1985 CEO John Sculley. Gates thought Apple was too locked down, hardware and software, and would benefit from opening up and licensing it’s software to other companies to create “Mac Compatible” products.

Apple didn’t listen to Gates, obviously, and we have the world as we know it today. As an Apple fanguy/girl it’s worth reading for a peek at the world as it could have been.
