When asked why all this? For Jobs, the original Mac machine was not just a computer; it was something more than that a noble piece of art. It was the one and only mainstream computer that had a graphical user interface, and the team who worked on this had high knowledge of artistic and technical qualities. It is known fact that all great artists sign their work at the end, Jobs thought, that the Mac team deserves and has all rights to do it so all of them signed on the piece of art computer which they made.
