Apple CEO Steve Jobs believes that Apple would have achieved better market share if it wasn't for the sales guys.

Speaking to Steven Levy of CNN's Newsweek, Jobs said: "The Mac-user interface was a 10-year monopoly. Who ended up running the company? Sales guys. At the critical juncture in the late '80s, when they should have gone for market share, they went for profits.

"They made obscene profits for several years. And their products became mediocre. And then their monopoly ended with Windows 95. They behaved like a monopoly, and it came back to bite them, which always happens."

And, Jobs noted: "Look who's running Microsoft now – Steve Ballmer – a sales guy."
