I love this picture because it's a great representation of the dichotomy between the two. Gates, the developer of the enormously business-centric operating system, appears well kept in a button down shirt, slacks and loafers; Jobs on the otherhand is relaxing in an easy-chair with a loose sweater, jeans and no shoes.
Even their posture speaks volumes about their mentality.

Well then, isn't that something to consider before barking up the wrong tree?
Yes. If only it were easier to know when we're barking up the wrong tree!
