Blast From the D Past: Apple's Steve Jobs and Microsoft's Bill Gates at D5 in 2007

Apple CEO Steve Jobs is making another appearance onstage, at the eighth D: All Things Digital conference tonight.

Since we announced his appearance, BoomTown has been posting videos of previous interviews Jobs has done at past D events.

Here’s the video, below, of the joint interview at D5 in 2007, that the iconic leader of Apple (AAPL) did with Bill Gates of Microsoft (MSFT) (both are pictured here).

I have previously posted videos of Jobs’s appearances, including his solo interview at D5 in 2007, at D3 in 2005, at D2 in 2004 and at D1 in 2003.

One caveat: The source material of the earlier interviews is of varying quality, so audio synch is a little iffy.

While Walt Mossberg and I look forward to talking with Jobs tonight, here is the D5 video (and check out the gallery of the whole event here):
