Even PC owners can thank Jobs since it was the Apple Operating System that Windows emulated. The concept of "Windows" was Apple's.

I-Mac, MacIntosh for the every-man, Pixar, I-pod, I-Pad, touch screens, etc...

I'd agree that no single person has had more influence on lifestyles in the last 50 years other than perhaps Timothy Leary.

Sorry, but how does a guy who promoted psychedelic drug use compare with Steve Jobs?

I'm genuinely interested in your answer for I really am unaware of any large scale lasting effect Leary has had on lifestyles of today.

I was mostly joking, Mike, but Jobs was not influential 50 years ago. Just one of the more influential folks in that period. Same with Leary, Lorne Michaels. I really am not comparing magnitude here.

Leary definitely was a part of recreational usage of pharmaceuticals being made more available, and accessed by intellectuals. Flower power, psychedelia, music, Woodstock all had some piece attributable.

But I really WAS joking.
