  • Bill Gates

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.

Pour Bill Gates, les raisons de la débâcle subie par Windows Mobile, le système d'exploitation mobile de la firme de Redmond, sont nombreuses et ne proviennent pas uniquement des déséquilibres internes de l'OS.

Australian firefighters battle widespread blazes amid threat of worsening conditions
Authorities have appealed to people to register themselves, and register details if they are concerned for missing loved ones. On Friday evening, a State of Fire Emergency for Queensland residents was declared: "It is now too late to leave the area".

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.
