The Huffington Post has put a fun post together of some of Jobs' best quotes about Gates. My favorite is from 2006:
"I have no problem with their (Microsoft's) success, they've earned their success for the most part. I have a problem with the fact that they just make really third-rate products."
As the years have gone on, Jobs has mellowed a bit. In a joint appearance at the All Things Digital Conference in 2007 the two titans joked and laughed with each other.
So take a quick trip down memory lane and see the Steve Jobs fireworks before you fire off your own tonight.
