Actually, as people have pointed out on several forums, what BG is talking about is the era prior to Windows Phone 7. That is, the CE style of phone ver 6.5 and previous. It was during that era that they failed to capture a dominant position even though they got an early start, and it was that period that contained the "mistakes". BG is suggesting that "now" they have it right, and the situation will correct itself. In no way would he be dumb enough to suggest the current strategy is failing. To admit that MS stock would decline 25%. This does not mean that the current strategy is brilliant, only that your interpretation of what he is saying is incorrect.

I agree that Bill Gates said that the strategy failed, but not that it will necessarily continue to fail. He is a fighter, and will put all the strength of MS behind this effort.
NEVER UNDERESTIMATE MS.

On a side note, one of the reasons WP is failing, is that it's an AD (P)OS.
This is something that is never being pointed out.
The "Live Tiles" are nothing else than xxx annoying ADS.
So, with WP you get a (P)OS which is:
- a closed ecosystem, totally dominated by MS (like Apple, but MS is not trendy...)
- still unfinished and full of bugs
- still with very few apps
- with no support for legacy apps
- at a premium price
- throwing XXX FLASHING ADS CONTINUOUSLY AT YOU...

LIVE TILES = CONTINUOUS ADVERTISMENT = ANNOYANCE = USELESS

This is why...

NO ONE WANTS A WINDOWS PHONE OR TABLET

And Bill realized it.

Meanwhile, THT Elop is still there. Nokia's BOD is still there...

Jorma Ollila knows. Jorma must speak.

Hm. Sorry, I'm not a native Enlgish speaker but.
Don't the words "went" or "didn't" indicate about the past tense? I mean - if Bill Gates told about today it would use something like "the way we go now, will not allow ..." and so on.

Seeing that SONY stay away from WP, but will introduce MozillaOS is also a BIG SLAP for microsoft.

Tencent

And not to mention that no one wants a WP because of their computer history (the never ending beta FYI)

The failure to provide a WM8 upgrade path from WM7.X on high end Lumia phones is kicking customers in the face.

Why would a consumer buy a Lumia 800 when it was obsolete from day 1?

WTF?

Elop MUST go. It's becoming too obvious now who he really is working for!

LiveFreeOrDieHard

Next time you see Elop talking about technology, turn it off or run away from the presentation.
He was not convincing from Day -1 at nokia, he's clueless about tech as you can see here in this old article.
