The Cult of Mac blog has a full interview with former Apple CEO John Sculley – this interview I believe is the first one he has given since his departure from Apple that specifically talks about Steve Jobs. It is long and given that it is not quite 7a right now I have yet to read it. Giving it a quick skim I did see this quote from John Sculley:
Steve believed that if you opened the system up people would start to make little changes and those changes would be compromises in the experience and he would not be able to deliver the kind of experience that he wanted.
I wonder how much of that quote is influenced by how Sculley perceives Steve Jobs to be today, and how much is actually historically accurate.
