David DeJean of InfoWorld noticed that Vista was missing from M$'s huge CES display:

Vista wasn't just MIA from CES, it seems to be increasingly MIA from the marketplace. On the eve of Vista's first birthday, approximately, was it once again Microsoft's flagship product for CES? If you had asked the typical CES attendee, the response would have probably been, "What's Vista?" My colleague Paul McDougall dug into the statistics behind Bill Gates' keynote and concluded that Vista has proved far less popular with new PC buyers than Windows XP was during its first year. Several tech Web sites put Vista on their year-end "2007's biggest losers" lists, and Linux, Mac OS X, and even Windows XP have all enjoyed a surge of attention in the year just past.

Will Vista sink quietly into the night like ME did? Is the tipping point here?
