If you ask Bill Gates what is his biggest mistake, he will tell you straight ahead, it was Android. Microsoft, the company he founded, is well-known for its software.

And according to his words, in the world of software, the winner takes it all. If Gates could go back, he would definitely manage Microsoft different, so that it is what Android is today.

Gates says that there is place for only one operating system in the world of mobile technology aside from iOS by Apple, and that one is Android. He wished it was made by Microsoft, and not by Google.

In 2007, Google bought Android Inc. for $50 million, and announced it will make a whole new mobile concept allowing more people access to Internet. The rest is history.

In this recent interview, Bill Gates talks about his thoughts on Android, but also on startups and technology.
