Microsoft's Bill Gates Comments on Jobs' Death: It's Been an "Insanely Great Honor" to Work with Him

October 5, 2011 8:30 PM EDT
Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) founder Bill Gates released a statement on the passing of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. The two were bitter rivals for years.

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.
