Arthur Osbourne[edit]

Arthur Osborne, father of Adam Osborne, was not a guru in India. He was one of the western disciples of Ramana Maharshi and wrote a biography of the Maharshi. Arthur Osborne and his wife were not missionaries, they were sadhakas (spiritual aspirants) themselves

Create article on the copyright case please[edit]

With a link to it from here. There's got to be something more to the case than just "look & feel". Traditionaly US copyright protections just cover specific expression of an idea and not the idea itself. Jon 13:55, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

Osborne & Steve Jobs[edit]

Does this ( count as a source, and if so can we include it?Scott 110 (talk) 07:49, 15 July 2008 (UTC) boo

Thanks for Clarification![edit]

Adam enjoyed telling people (including me) that his parents were reverse missionaries who converted Christian Indians back into Hinduism. Perhaps this was another example of his marvelous sense of humor? By the way, while this Wiki article is factual and to the point, it doesn't really tell you who Adam Osborne was. Adam was a charming visionary, one of nature's truest optimists, and the most gracious of hosts--he threw some of the best Halloween parties ever. In addition, Adam was generous and kind hearted. As one example, his house in Berkeley had formerly been a Shaolin temple and monastary, and Adam still allowed a couple, both kung fu practioners and musicians, to live in the guest rooms under the garage where he kept his land yacht Packard. Furthermore, Adam never made a big deal about it. If anyone asked, Adam would say, vaguely, that they were caretakers of sorts. The other thing I admired about Adam was that it was always about the computers and not him. His even named his cats Altair, MITS, and PC. I think he even enjoyed the subtle irony of how PC enjoyed taking dumps on his roof. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Comingup4air (talkcontribs) 07:13, 6 December 2008 (UTC)
