History, as Steve Jobs had written it, has the Apple co-founder battling against a hostile board of directors and then-CEO John Sculley before being fired and heading off to found NeXT. That bit of common folklore has been refuted by Sculley, who earlier this year said "Steve was never fired. He took a sabbatical and was still chairman of the board. He was down, no one pushed him, but he was off the Mac, which was his deal - he never forgave me for that." Now Steve Wozniak has added fuel to the fire by posting a similar comment on Facebook.
Responding to a post by Robert Scoble regarding Woz's favorable review of the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic on The Verge, Woz said that:
It's interesting to see that Wozniak and other friends of Jobs are finally speaking up about the reality of the late CEO's personality and life, four years after his death. During the months and years just after Jobs passed on October 5, 2011, it seemed like nobody was willing or able to make negative comments about his forceful personality. Now that a respectful amount of time has passed, it's nice to see that his former co-workers are able to open up about the fact and fiction surrounding Jobs.
