I have been a Mac person since the mid 1980s when I became a research assistant for a Chemistry professor who is a Mac person. Gods bless her! For a few years I admit that I wandered in the wilderness of Windows, but then Steve Jobs returned to Apple and so did I. Gods bless him. Now Steve Jobs has left Apple for good.
I would think of Steve Jobs as a genius of historical proportions even if it did not turn out that he and I happened to agree about stuff like global warming and Buddhism. I know plenty of idiots and assholes who are environmentalists and Buddhists, and I know conservative Republican Christians who are good, decent, intelligent human beings.
But for whatever it might be worth, Steve Jobs was, as a matter of fact, an Arab-American, a liberal hippie, and a Buddhist.
