Apple "As Apple's CEO introduces his new iPhone today, and its market cap passes Microsoft's, the man who infamously fired him, John Sculley, tells The Daily Beast's Thomas E. Weber about his regrets, their rift - and how their partnership could have worked: Jobs should have been CEO, and Sculley's boss, rather than the other way around. Plus, other 1985 board members on Jobs then and now, and where they are today."

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_Computer,_Inc._v._Microsoft_Corp... for the full story. Part was settled in 1994, the rest in 1997 via negotiations after Jobs returned.

Ok, I understand the license agreement played a big part in the court case. Its difficult to say for certain what the outcome would have been, if not for that contractual agreement. However,my personal opinion is that it wouldn't have mattered.

I really don't think most people would want to live in a world where Apple had won that lawsuit.
