Bill Gates thinks one of the main reasons why Microsoft was unable to build the world’s most popular mobile operating system is that he got too personally involved with the company’s antitrust battle. However, he’s not too concerned for Microsoft’s future, as the company has adapted to a world that’s dominated by Android and iOS.

Microsoft officially pulled the plug on its mobile operating system in 2017, when it made a quiet admission that there was no room in the market for a third option alongside iOS and Android. During an interview at The New York Times’ Dealbook Conference, Bill Gates has expressed his thoughts on why Windows Phone failed. He explained that if he hadn’t been busy fighting in a Microsoft antitrust case in the early 2000s, the company would have been in a better position to build the ultimate mobile operating system for phones.
