Apple, it’s time to license the operating system and undo the mistake of 30 years ago

In June 1985, Bill Gates sent a letter to Apple CEO John Sculley and Mac development head Jean Louis Gassée, urging them license Apple’s operating system to other companies. Apple ignored his advice, and five months later, Microsoft released its own operating system, Windows. It went on to become the dominant player in the personal-computer industry while Apple floundered. Microsoft saved Apple from bankruptcy in 1997 by investing $150 million in it. There are many ways to interpret this history lesson, but one thing is clear: building an open platform gave Microsoft MSFT, +0.04% a huge advantage.
