Who Owns Apple Computers?

By the_webninja ·
I feel kinda stupid asking this question, cause I am almost SURE I heard that Bill Gates Bought Apple a long time ago.
But recently I was in a disscussion with someone about the Stock Market and this guy swore up and down that Steve Jobs Owned Apple. I know Steve Jobs Founded Apple, and I know he is still the CEO, but I could have sworn I heard a while back that Bill Gates Bought Apple.

Can someone set me straight with the Facts and Possibly include a Link to some kind of supporting evidence?

You heard that Microsoft invested in Apple years ago - The owners are the shareholders - yes Steve Jobs is the founder of Apple - and should have the most shares in the company - which means he has the controlling interest in Apple.
