The Computer History Museum (CHM) announced today that it has, with the collaboration of the Digibarn Computer Museum and with permission from Apple Inc., posted the historic original 1978 source code for the Apple II DOS "Disk Operating System."

Pretty cool. More on the Apple II can be found at the Computer History Museum's blog.

It's a matter of alchemy I bet. You cannot get Apple without one of its component : Woz as hardware and software designer, Jobs as envisioning leader. See Apple when Jobs was fired : Apple declined with no vision, Next was pretty good with some other pretty good techies but no Wozniak in sight.

I really think that one of the main talent of Jobs : finding the right profiles to do the jobs... <- pun intended !

Another one I see similar in vision, but more versatile in products, is Sir Richard Branson.

Gabe Newell from Valve also seems to be a man with the plan.

No idea if it works out, but you can't be successful with at least some ideas:
