Co-founders of Microsoft Corp., Bill Gates and Paul Allen, expressed their condolences and regret about the death of Steve Jobs, the co-founder and a long-time leader of Apple. Despite of being rivals for over three decades, the co-founders of Microsoft call Mr. Jobs a unique tech pioneer, colleague, competitor and friend.

"I’m truly saddened to learn of Steve Jobs’ death. Melinda and I extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends, and to everyone Steve has touched through his work. Steve and I first met nearly 30 years ago, and have been colleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more than half our lives. 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. For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it’s been an insanely great honor.  I will miss Steve immensely," said Bill Gates in a statement.

"My condolences to Steve Jobs family and friends. We've lost a unique tech pioneer and auteur who knew how to make amazingly great products. Steve fought a long battle against tough odds in a very brave way. He kept doing amazing things in the face of all that adversity. As someone who has had his own medical challenges, I couldn’t help but be encouraged by how he persevered," said Paul Allen in a statement.

There's no such thing as "Thursday, the 5th of October 2011". October 5th 2011 is a Wednesday.

Visionaries like Steve Jobs reveal the true secret to the Universe in that nothing is impossible with time, perseverance, and positive visualization. Such a passion for furthering human communication inspires. His legacy will survive generations with names like Edison, Tesla as the greatest inventors and visionaries of all time. As an artist, I draw from these inspirations and advancements in my work and you may enjoy my recent portrait of Mr. Jobs, now In Memoriam at http://dregstudiosart.blo...nd-of-era-steve-jobs.html
