Microsoft's Best Investment Ever?

Does anyone remember Steve Jobs and Bill Gates getting together in 1997 right after Jobs came back to Apple?  On that August day in 1997, the companies announced that Microsoft would invest $150 million into Apple and promised to refresh the Microsoft products for the Mac OS.  

I have no idea if Microsoft held on to the 31 million shares they would have been able to buy for $150 million.  If Microsoft still owns those shares they would now be worth over $8.5 BILLION!
