Remember this? When Steve Jobs had Bill Gates appear like the Wizard of Oz in a MacWorld keynote? Bill appeared to assure the world that Microsoft was going to keep developing Office for the Mac.

It happened back on August 6, 1997. The video is pretty amazing to watch when we've got more recent and triumphant Apple keynotes to compare it to. When was the last time the crowd seemed ready to jump on stage and beat Steve up? [9 to 5 Mac via CrunchGear]
