You also forgot SteamOS.

SteamOS is not yet relevant. Sure, there are huge number of press releases, but it's not yet clear how much interest there will be among [potential] users. It may grow big or it may become a footnote in the history books, we just don't know yet.

Bojan's orignal point was:

"No serious entity is doing anything to actually make a platform of it, so no serious entity is thinking of building hardware or software for it"

That's plainly untrue if you count SteamOS; it may not be a mass market success yet (or ever), but Valve absolutely are trying to make a platform out of it, and encourage others to build both hardware and software for it.
