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.

I don't think the PC industry is dying... tablets are the new PCs, people just need to learn to redfine what a PC is. My non-nerd friends all refer to their tablets as PCs and computers. They don't think of them as being different

I've never heard of anyone referring to their tablets as PCs, but anyway, naming aside... the problem for Microsoft is that those new "PCs" that people are buying in droves are not running Windows, regardless what you want to call them.
