Microsoft’s development director, Craig Mundie, blames hackers for the smartphone problems that Microsoft has suffered to date.
â€œDuring [the time that Apple was building the iPhone], Windows went through a difficult period where we had to shift a huge amount of our focus to security engineering,â€ said Mundie. â€œThe criminal activity in cyberspace was growing dramatically ten years ago, and Microsoft was basically the only company that had enough volume for it to be a target. In part because of that, Windows Vista took a long time to be born.â€
Yeah…that was the reason.
And Mundie goes on to lament that they had a music player and a touch device before Apple. Um, being first only counts if it doesn’t suck my friend.
Adapt or perish.
