Jobs came up with a brilliant jujitsu maneuver against Gates,

乔布斯想出了一记漂亮的柔术招式来对抗盖茨,
one that could have changed the balance of power in the computer industry forever.

It required Jobs to do two things that were against his nature:
这需要乔布斯违背自己的本性做两件事:
licensing out his software to another hardware maker and getting into bed with IBM.
授权自己的软件给另一个硬件制造商,并和IBM合作。
He had a pragmatic streak, albeit a tiny one, so he was able to overcome his reluctance.
乔布斯的个性有几分务实,虽然不多,因此他能够克服自己的不情愿。
But his heart was never fully in it, which is why the alliance would turn out to be short-lived.

It began at a party, a truly memorable one,
一切始于一次聚会,一次令人难忘的聚会。
