I Saw Pirates Today

No, not the Pirates of the Carribean. Rather, Pirates of Silicon Valley, the made-for-TV TNT movie about the birth of Apple and Microsoft.

I am not certain how accurate the portrayal of Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, Bill Gates, etc. are (I know some of the history is inaccurate or at least misleading, e.g. the Lisa is not presented as the flop it was), but if it is accurate, then at least in the cases of Jobs and Gates, I am reminded of Bismarck's comment that you don't want to see sausage or legislation being made. Add computer operating systems to the list.

That is all.
