Some bittersweet CES news for "Windows Warriors": an exciting update regarding Microsoft's XBox Kinect was met with the announcement that this will be the company's final keynote at the annual Las Vegas show.

To start with the good news, Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer announced that the XBox Kinect's motion controller, camera and microphone system will be available for PC Users on February 1.

The overall plan is to integrate the Kinect's core voice and motion recognition system to work with the Windows operating system. Ballmer also announced that Microsoft is working with over 200 companies to develop unique Windows apps for the device.

However, Microsoft fans also learned what they long feared -- that this would be the company's last booth presence and keynote at the annual technology show. The company is pulling out because of poor timing with their product development calendar.
