D5 - Video of an interview of Steve Jobs & Bill Gates

If you have some time to burn and are interested in a little computer history, as well seeing Bill Gates and Steve Jobs on a stage together for the first time in ages, then check out the following:

D5All Things Digital: Joint Interview with Steve Jobs & Bill Gates by Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher.

There are seven parts to the interview plus the prologue.

The Prologue is initially quite funny as it is a parody on the Dating Game. And, it is pretty neat to see out of the three industry leaders introduced at the beginning, only Gates is standing today. We go on to see some bits of history in the relationship between Microsoft and Apple.

The Highlight Reel spotlights some dialogue where Jobs says some things that render Gates completely speechless. It was good for a laugh.

Check it out ... it is a little bit of history in the making for our industry as well as a good history lesson about our industry.

It is also really neat to get a glimpse of both Gates and Jobs' thoughts and personalities.

Thanks to Todd Bishop's Microsoft Blog: Steve Jobs, Bill Gates discuss their relationship for pointing this one out.
