"That was my dream. That was my nightmare." -- Col Kurtz in Apocalypse Now.

McCraken goes to Apple, becomes CEO, turns it into a server company and
runs it into the ground.

Jobs goes to SGI, in a sweetheart deal reminiscent of NeXT, becomes CEO
in exchange for a $1 billion dollar purchase of Pixar, turns it into a
Windows NT company, Microsoft buys a $100 million dollar stake in it,
and he runs it into the ground.
