Con

I have a few arguments why Bill Gates is a better inventor than Steve Jobs.

Arguments:
1. Windows 8 is the most advanced operating system in a computer. Windows 8 features Live Tiles, which help you customize your desktop better by making the more important applications bigger and the applications that you never use smaller unlike Mac OS in which all of your application shortcuts are the same size and you cant make them any bigger. Also you could run a Desktop mode feature similar to Windows 7 if you prefer a more traditional desktop interface! These are two reasons why Microsoft's Operating Systems are better than Apple's Operating Systems.

2. Windows Phone 8 is the most advanced mobile operating system. One reason why is that it features those Live Tiles which should be self explanatory by now. Another reason why Windows Phone 8 is a stronger operating system than iOS is because Microsoft Office 2013 (Word, Powerpoint, Excel, OneNote) come preloaded in Windows Phone 8 while in iOS you can download iWork which is a watered down version of Microsoft Office (Pages, Keynote, Numbers) that cost $9.99 per program ($29.99 plus tax for all programs!) Windows Phone 8 is more phone brand-friendly with HTC, Nokia, Samsung, and Acer making phones with Windows Phone 8 while iOS is Apple only!

3. The XBOX 360 is no match for Apple because Apple does not make a console gaming system. The XBOX 360 runs Internet Explorer, Netflix, Hulu Plus, Pandora, DVD, MLB TV, NBA League Pass, NHL Gamecenter Live, NFL Redzone, DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket, and the best of all, video games! XBOX 360 runs many hit gaming series like Call of Duty, Need for Speed, Assassin's Creed, Grand Theft Auto, Madden NFL, EA Sports NHL, 2K Sports MLB and NBA, etc. while having quite a list of exclusives:
Halo
Gears of War
Minecraft XBOX 360
Forza
Blazing Angels
and Much More

These are three reasons why Bill Gates and Microsoft are better than Steve Jobs and Apple.
