Regardless of the quality of the article, the main point is valid and Microsoft shouldn't be creating a fake history that many will confuse as fact. Windows won the desktop war but it was about 10 years later than 1985. In the real 1985 Bill Gates was still hoping Apple would license Mac OS in a broad way that would make further development of Windows redundant and allow Microsoft to be dominant in GUI applications written for Mac OS running on PCs. Excel 1.0 was a Mac-only program in 1985.
