Is Michael Dell an A$$hole?


Stewart Cheifet, host of the Computer Chronicles, many years ago said he did not like Michael Dell, because he was not nice to him, when Cheifet was setting up an interview with him...

Just curious, what are the other reasons for why people seem to post on message boards that he is an A-hole - ?

I know he transformed computer marketing and sold me several computers that worked very nicely over the years.

Why are you asking people who haven't called him an asshole why other people have called him one?

Would it not make far more sense to ask the question of those other people?

Most smart people are assholes sometimes. And many rich people are assholes. So, not having met the guy, but based on those assumptions, I'd imagine he's probably an asshole, but dunno for sure.
