蘋果與微軟在科技史上交手過很多次,早年賈伯斯與比爾蓋茲也是亦敵亦友的關係。雙方鬧不愉快的爆發點是什麼呢?其中一個原因就是賈伯斯借鏡了全錄(Xerox)PARC設計的圖形介面與滑鼠,卻又多嘴告訴了比爾蓋茲有這項發明,後來讓微軟推出了圖形介面的Windows 3.0並造成轟動,雙方的關係則越來越差。這過程中到底發生了那些事情,讓我們來看看吧!

▲很久很久以前,有兩個相鄰的大國,分別是 MAC 國、Microsoft 國,附近還有一個鼻屎般大的小國——全錄國。MAC 國內有一個博學多聞的知名人物,叫做賈伯斯,他在國內有一群近乎宗教狂熱般的粉絲,因此我們稱他為賈僧。

▲賈僧心心念念著要為他的 MAC 國貢獻一份心力,因此出發去尋找能壯大 MAC 國的秘密武器。賈僧取經的路線正是全錄國的方向。

▲歷經千辛萬苦,賈僧來到全錄國了。當時的全錄國雖然小,卻蘊含許多科學資源,算是科技知識拔尖的一個小國。

▲賈僧在全錄國接受款待,見識到了全錄國的高科技產物「滑鼠」、「GUI(圖形使用者介面系統)」。面對這些高科技,賈僧受到前所未有的文化衝擊。

▲於是他將這些知識通通帶回 MAC 國,他深深相信這是更能讓 MAC 國壯大的武器。

▲將這些科技引回 MAC 國內的賈僧,製作出了麥金塔。這項產品大受國民歡迎,賈僧的狂熱粉絲更甚,他因此被尊稱為新一代Seafood,享受英雄般的待遇。

▲有天,Microsoft 國的國王比爾蓋茲來訪,兩人相談甚歡。

▲比爾蓋茲來訪的用意,是想用 Microsoft 國內最新研究出的 Multiplan 寶典來和 MAC 國合作,希望這個寶典能夠搭配 MAC 國特產的麥金塔,推廣到全世界。Multiplan 就是 Excel 的前身。

▲決意合作的兩人越聊越起勁,賈僧就這樣把一個麥金塔特產送給了比爾蓋茲,並將他在全錄國發現的機密科技「滑鼠」、「GUI」脫口告訴了比爾蓋茲。

▲比爾蓋茲一聽,心想輸人不輸陣,他也要做出這些好東西,他有信心做得比 MAC 國更好。於是他一回國就號召國民連夜趕工製作「滑鼠」、「GUI」,打算在 Microsoft 國推出新的科技產品 「windows 3.0」

▲沒日沒夜地趕工,居然真的讓比爾蓋茲完成了這兩項新產品,賈僧大驚失色,沒想到 Microsoft 國居然真的做出來了!

▲賈僧憤恨不已,但一切只能怪自己大嘴巴。而原本期望與Microsoft 國合作的 Multiplan 寶典能推廣到全世界,卻也因為麥金塔售價太高,在 MAC 國外的市場慘滑鐵盧,沒能達成制霸世界的創舉。這個結果對賈僧來說可真是賠了夫人又折兵。

▲但其中最衰小的是全錄國,科技被剽竊,讓兩個大國坐收漁翁之利,身為小國還沒有置喙的餘地,有人考慮過全錄國的心情嗎?
