Bill Gates, speaking on a CNBC TV program “Keeping America Great” town hall event, paired with billionaire investor Warren Buffett, is noted to have complimented Steve Jobs on his return to Apple, crediting him for effectively saving the company. One audience member asked Gates’ opinion of Jobs, specifically in regards to latter’s contributions as a CEO. “Well, he’s done a fantastic job,” said Gates. “Apple is in a bit of a different business where they make hardware and software together. But when Steve was coming back to Apple, which was actually through an acquisition of NeXT that he ran, Apple was in very tough shape. In fact, most likely it wasn’t going to survive.”
