    In December 2009, Microsoft had 90% of the personal computer market share. Oh yea, he did WONDERS for Apple.

    Wasn't it just a few months ago that Apple surpassed Exxon (albeit temporarily) as the most valuable corporation on the planet? Yeah, pretty bad track record.

    My thought was his health too. I have always heard he has issues, but nobody seems to know what his condition is.

    He had Pancreatic Cancer.. then a Liver Transplant.
    His cancer may have metastasized into the liver and other organs prior to the transplant and may be back... again.

    Re: Steve Jobs resigns.

    There comes a time in every ones life when they have reached a point where they can go no farther and they realize they have only so much time time left and they decide to hang it up and try to enjoy what time is left without the hubbub of business and the worry that comes from it.


    I have been there and it's not an easy thing to face, but once you do that, everything becomes easier to live the next day.

    I think Steve has come to that place in his life, and I respect his choice.

    I wish him an easy transition to being a regular very rich guy.

    I heard it's something to do with cancer, I hope he recovers, even evil geniuses are allowed to recover from cancer.

    Another way of looking at it:

    More to the point, Apple is now making most of its profit from iPhone/iPad/iTunes -- not personal computers. MS has been much less successful outside of its core business.
