What a beautiful eulogy. I teared up reading up.

I wonder what he was seeing when he spoke his final words,

OH WOW. OH WOW. OH WOW.

Steve was a visionary whose focus was on individual computing versus corporate computing. As i'm sitting here fighting yet another substandard operating OS known as "Windows 7" AKA "takes forever to boot up - must reboot constantly - big waste of time".
