Bill Gates On ‘Growing Up’ With Steve Jobs

Taken from Forbes :
“We grew up together.” Bill Gates, speaking to 60 Minutes this week, let his emotions show when talking about Steve Jobs. “When he was sick, I got to go down and spend time with him,” Gates said, seeming to fight back tears. “[We] talked about what we learned, about families. Anything.” Gates said the conversation was not melancholoy and was “forward looking” because “thinking about your potential mortality isn’t constructive.” Said Gates, speaking to interviewer Charlie Rose, “He and I, in a sense, grew up together..We were within a year of the same age, and we were kind of naively optimistic and built big companies. And every fantasy we had about creating products and learning new things– we achieved all of it. And most of it as rivals. But we always retained a certain respect and communication, including even when he was sick.”
