2007 - Windows Vista

Bill's eleventh keynote may have placed emphasis on "Connected Experiences" but it was Vista that dominated headlines. You couldn't move for Microsoft's next operating system at CES 2007, it was everywhere. Vista showed up on every major desktop, laptop and peripheral you laid eyes on.
