  • Microsoft Windows Phone sur un smartphone Nokia

Malheureusement pour Microsoft, l'histoire a démontré que c'est Android qui a raflé la mise, mais si l'éditeur de Redmond n'avait pas été empêtré dans ses histoires d'antitrust, Bill Gates est persuadé que Windows Mobile se serait alors imposé. On a longtemps cherché des explications à l'échec de la firme de Redmond sur le marché des smartphones. Cependant, pour Gates, la véritable raison de ce flop, ce sont les poursuites pour abus de position dominante dont Microsoft a fait l'objet dans les années 2000.

C'est durant une séance de questions/réponses avec le New York Times que le fondateur de Microsoft (et aujourd'hui philanthrope) a donné le fond de sa pensée. Et d'enfoncer le clou en suggérant que le géant américain "aurait été plus concentré sur la création du système d'exploitation". Il ajoute:"J'étais trop distrait". J'ai merdé à cause de la distraction.

Pour rappel, le dirigeant avait déjà révélé il y a quelques mois que sa "plus grande erreur" était de ne pas avoir réussi à développer l'équivalent mobile de Windows et à créer ainsi le meilleur système d'exploitation mobile "non-Apple" au monde.
