It wasn't until XP that the NT version of Windows was for consumers and enterprises. Previously NT was for enterprise, and DOS-based was for consumers.--Laura Knotek (formerly known as lak611)

Post-PC? Definitely not, the PCs will continue to exist forever. They may have different form of input/output devices (for example, instead of "old and busted" displays and mouse/keyboard they will use VR goggles and VR gloves or full-body VR suits with full-body haptic feedback or (in the very far future) "brain wave activity" interfaces) but there will always be need for large boxes housing most powerful consumer hardware available for the most demanding tasks.

For sometime now their products weighed heavily on the business/enterprise side. Office, Server, Dynamics, an OS that supports any business required program. Consumer focused products like Zune, Xbox, Windows Media Center, etc. have usually been side shows. Its only recently actually that MS has pushed more of the consumer aspects of their product lines.

I think Microsoft is trying to connect consumer with enterprise in a more seamless and congruent manner. That's where they are heading.
