Although Apple and Google officially sit out the biggest tech trade show of the year, their platforms are well represented by the third parties that create thousands of products for them. This year it feels like Microsoft is simply being left out.

Windows has virtually no presence in the two biggest things to hit computing in a long time, and it's starting to show. Microsoft may not be in trouble - but Windows is.

Actually, they earn money with every Windows license. I started with 7, then upgraded to 8 on this machine. Of course, 8 was cheap, and 8.1 was free.

That's exactly what the above poster said, because regular people do not upgrade their OS. And with Windows 8, even tech-savvy people are rather reluctant.
