Gates said that the biggest mistake he made when managing the company was that he did not let Microsoft become the "non-Apple" operating system platform, and let Android rise, which is a $400 billion business.
He believes that the software world is a stage for winners. This sentence may have two meanings. First, Microsoft was one of the best software giants, but it missed the opportunity of mobile; second, iOS and Android dominated today, becoming a new winner, Microsoft wants to break, almost impossible .
In addition, regarding work and balance, Gates's point of view is that entrepreneurship does need to sacrifice a lot in the early stages, because you need to prove that your ideas are right, you have to spare no effort.
Gates also said that the disaster caused by a tiny mistake in the software industry is huge, and he will still think about these things in the night.
