Bill Gates says letting Android win mobile was his ‘biggest mistake’ at Microsoft

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates says letting Google’s Android platform become dominant was his “biggest mistake” at the company.

The Windows desktop operating system has been a core piece of Microsoft through much of its 44-year history, but Microsoft has failed to win a leadership position in mobile operating systems. It lags behind Alphabet’s Google, and Apple. At today’s Microsoft, Windows remains a contributor of revenue and profit, but Microsoft has moved on to focus more on cloud infrastructure and applications, essentially ceding the mobile platform business.
