I am by no means an Apple fanboy, I just have to get that out of the way. I've been a Windows professional for over 15 years and aside from a brief dalliance with an iPod Shuffle a few years ago have mostly avoided Apple products in recent years, but the passing of Steve Jobs has still hit me like a punch to the jaw.
Among other people such as my dad, I owe my love of computers and video games to Steve Jobs. Our first computer was an Apple II+ and I used that thing and the Apple IIe that preceded it as much as I could. Without that exposure, I don't think I would have gotten on to the path that lead me to where I am today.
How many other people out there are where they are today because of the vision of Steve Jobs?
Who else is profoundly sad that Steve Jobs has died?
Rest in peace, Steve.
