    Jobs did in fact "steal" the windows concept from XEROX Palo Alto Research Center (PARC).
    He then had the audacity to sue anyone who tried to implement it such as Digital Research and Microsoft.  Microsoft had the resources to fight back and won.
    Windows is a great concept.  
    Apple did much to popularize it.  
    Microsoft made it ubiquitous.

    Both Jobs and Gates are Marketeers, not technological inventors.  They are not Computer Geeks.  They take what the Geeks create and turn it in to lots and lots of cash.
    Ain't nothing wrong with that.
