why Apple is so right about their fight over patents? well..to understand the fundamental problem we have to go way back in time to the mid 80’s.
in 1984 Apple was the first company in the world to launch the first GUI OS called Macintosh. that was a revolutionary in any shape or form. yes I know some of you will remind me that the idea came from the Xerox labs, and some people will claim that Steve Jobs stole their ideas and implemented them with the mac.
to make a long story short ill say that it’s half-true since Xerox thought of the general idea but didn’t do anything with it or knew how to get it to the market, as for Jobs, well, he saw the potential and made it work through a whole new concept around those ideas.
since Apple didn’t patent their OS back then, and the software companies got access to the guts and bones of the OS so they can develop their software for the mac, one software company took one step forward and copied it to develop their own OS.
