Orochimaru tried to learn every jutsu by trying to gain the Sharingan. Now, had he been the genius you say he is, he would have known his quest was full of pure failure the second he was owned by Itachi. And Itachi was a CHILD. After that, he lived the rest of his life as Sasuke's bitch. Some life he lived.
Let's compare how both of their lives were ended, shall we?
Jiraiya was killed by Pain, the leader of Akatsuki. Who is a Rinnegan user, Rinnegan, being superior to Sharingan and Byakugan. And it took Pain six of his bodies to take Jiraiya down. And Jiraiya actually KILLED Pain's bodies FOUR times.
Now let's look at how Orochimaru died. Sasuke killed him in his real form, then took the poor homeless snake in as his bitch. Then he was killed by a damn near dead Itachi.
I don't know about you, but Jiraiya died a better death.
