Bill Gates: Windows Phone could have defeated Android

Asked to choose between Warren and President Trump for the 2020 Presidential elections, Gates said he'd vote the "more professional" candidate.

Warren then responded on Twitter that she would be happy to meet with Gates, and reassured him the price tag he would pay to the government under her plan wouldn't be almost what he fears.

Gates noted that he believes wealthy individuals should pay more taxes than they now do. "But when you say I should pay $100 billion, then I'm starting to do a little math over what I have left over".

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates says he messed up the company's opportunity to develop Windows Mobile because he was distracted by its antitrust case brought by the Justice Department. He has said he supports reinstating the higher rate for the estate tax, which is assessed when a millionaire dies and seeks to pass along money to their heirs, as well as an increase in the capital gains tax, or the rate at which money made through investments is taxed.

At a conference, the philanthropist and Microsoft founder said it would stifle business innovation in America.

Gates had earlier this year said that losing to Android his "greatest mistake ever", and he admitted the loss was worth $400 billion.

Besides, the candidacy of Warren would strengthen big time, if she gets Bill Gates to back her policies and her campaign, seeing he has major popularity amongst all sections of society, which include rich billionaires Warren Buffet.

Essex Police said they have started extradition proceedings to bring him to the U.K.to face charges of manslaughter in the case. The bodies were found in the early hours of October 23 on a truck that had just entered Britain on a ferry from Belgium.


Addressing Gates directly, she said "if we get the chance, I'd love to explain exactly how much you'd pay under my wealth tax. (I promise it's not $100 billion)", she said.

Speaking at the New York Times DealBook conference Wednesday, Bill Gates spoke about the Democratic presidential candidate's proposed wealth tax - what she calls an "Ultra-Millionaire Tax" - which would directly tax multi-millionaires' net worth, as opposed to their income.

"And I hope that the more professional candidate is an electable candidate". "Sorry, I'm just kidding", he added.

Sorkin asked Gates why he isn't interested in space, to which Gates responded: "Because malnutrition is so much more impactful".

"I gave him the benefit of my association", Gates said.

"There's no doubt that the antitrust lawsuit was bad for Microsoft, and we would have been more focused on creating the phone operating system and so instead of using Android today you would be using Windows Mobile", Gates is quoted as saying. (The magazine puts his wealth at $97 billion).
