Jobs and Cancer

As everyone undoubtedly knows by this point, Steve Jobs had emergency cancer surgery over the weekend. Apparently he expects to make a full recovery and be back on the job soon.

When Steve Jobs has surgery, it's a Slashdot-worthy topic... and in the discussion was this comment:

I have a prediction:

Bill Gates will get cancer in about 10 years time. He will then file a slew of patents, like he was the first head of a major computing corporation to ever have it.

All the Apple-ites will then point out that Steve Jobs had cancer, 10 years before Bill Gates.

The more historical pedantic will then point out that the head of Xerox had cancer back in the 70s.

All kidding aside, get well soon, Steve. The industry wouldn't be the same without you.
