Bill Gates has claimed that Microsoft “did the key software” for Mac, and that his company deserves credit for Steve Jobs’ legendary Apple creation.

In an interview with ABC's Christiane Amanpour, Bill Gates claimed that “Steve and I worked together creating the Mac. [Microsoft] had more people on it, did the key software for it,” according to the Daily Mail.

However, Steve Jobs seemed to have hard feelings towards his competitor. In a biography published after his death, Jobs was quoted as saying that Gates, 56, was “basically unimaginative and has never invented anything, which is why I think he's more comfortable now in philanthropy than technology. He just shamelessly ripped off other people’s ideas.”

One possible explanation for this, Gates explained, is that Jobs felt bitter towards him due to the success of Microsoft. The Apple computer debuted in the 1980’s, but didn’t become successful until the past decade, and Gates believes that Jobs simply was jealous of his own success.

“'So the fact that we were succeeding with high volume products, you know, including a range of prices, because of the way we worked with multiple companies, it's tough,” Gates shared. “And so the fact that at various times, he felt beleaguered, he felt like he was the good guy and we were the bad guys - very understandable.”

Despite all of these hateful words, Gates did, at the time of Jobs’ death, claim that, “The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come. I will miss Steve immensely.” Yet it appears as though now that Jobs is gone, Gates feels free to claim the Apple legacy as his own.
