Windows

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.

If the author hasn't go to a CES in an alternative Earth, there are plenty of Windows tablets, hybrids and new form factors on CES. Windows is not preciselly absent. Meanwhile, Apple DOES NOT license its products to anyone, so "third parties" is a crude deformation of what's going on at CES.

I don't say that this is the best year for windows. I only say that WIndows is far for being dead, and that if the author didn't see windows product the only rational explanation was willing blindness.
