While Windows was "good enough" for the PC, it was lightyears away from being good enough for mobile, and that's what killed it from being ubiquitous.
Neither Gates nor anyone else at Microsoft ever struck me as being visionary. They were at the right place at the right time when IBM was looking for a partner to provide software for their crappy PC platform. They couldn't even write their shit on their own, they hat to quickly license some CP/M knockoff from Seattle Computers or whatever their name was. Their "win" wasn't on merit, it was sheer luck. And when they had the market power they employed imperialist strategies.
In other words: they were a bunch of assholes.
And thanks to another asshole, George Bush, they weren't split up as they were supposed to be which was already decided by law under the Clinton administration.
As someone else already wrote: Windows is a big piece of spaghetti code, and will eventually become extinct similiar to the dinosaurs.

As in easy to have secured them
begs the the question about backdoors. Rather than build one outright, just leave a quiet vulnerability.
This is one in particular is ridiculous.
This is just clickbait and everybody and their dog jumps on it because it has "Apple" and "vulnerabilty" in the headline.
I had expected a bit more research from AI before publishing on such a delicate topic.
