Yes they are. And both have openly affirmed that countless times. They don't hide behind BS claims of covert military operations jobs that cannot be traced.
They also developed products that are without question household names. While there are both Apple and Windows haters, nobody ever questioned their products as snake oil. There is no doubt that both Windows and Apple are viable systems with millions of proven installations.
The fact that so much controversy surrounds Shunyata and their competitors like JPS Labs is grounds enough that something is not right here. I don't see that with Apple or Microsoft.
You fail to see the difference in accomplishments between the two computer giant founders and the snooty cable makers. No power cord vendor has ever generated any proof of their claims.
Jobs, Gates, and many other non-degreed engineers have in fact proven themselves and earned the respect of the engineering community. Your poster boys have not.
