Bill Gates on Steve Jobs' death: I will miss him immensely

Bill Gates, Microsoft co-founder and long-time rival of Apple, has issued a touching statement about Steve Jobs’ death.

Describing working with the former Apple CEO as an “insanely great honour, ” Gates says that his relationship with Jobs – which covered more than half of their lives – was one of “colleagues, competitors and friends.”

Here’s Gates’s full statement:

“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.”
