Great isn't . Now we have unstable blue screens.
Monitor refresh rates and contrasts have improved so I don't suppose that
it can be considered the "dark ages" anymore .
As for giving a little credit to Steve Jobs, lets put this into perspective.
( Mac loving hat on )
Let's give a lot of credit to Jobs for producing the first personal computer
and even more credit to the visionaries in PARC who invented it in the
first place. Microsoft took a long time to react to that. Anyone remember
Windows v1.0 ?
