Thanks, Steve, for everything.
Absolutely the same here. From a longtime Brazilian Apple fan, Steve represented for me the force of the "good misfit" against status quo, establishment and lack of originality in the industry and the world as a whole.
Steve, ever since 1989 I have come to love Apple products and recommend them to others; and without ever owning a single piece of Apple stock I have provided long hours of free support to switchers and veterans alike. And why? Because you made us believe in perfectionism, even when the whole globe was proclaiming Apple dead in the 90s. You have shown that he who truly believes in the impossible, achieves it.
May the infinitely good Christian God bless you and your loved ones in this new journey towards infinity, and forgive your sins as any ordinary human being...you deserve the rest of the victors now.
Descanse em paz!
