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.

Define: presence.

I have a presence in the soft drink industry with 0.000000000000001% of market share ( I devised my own soft drink beverage and sold it on the streets in a street fair). Is it fair to mention me in the same sentence as cocacola or pepsi? Obviously an extreme example, but there is a cut off somewhere.

Thom would argue that its met the threshold in cell phones, but not in tablets ( as he would define tablets).

In any case I think his remark was easily understood and fairly accurate.
