Windows "Microsoft has laid out its roadmap for the next version of Windows Embedded, with a preview of the standard version available to download now. Windows Embedded is the specialized version of the OS that you'll often see running in devices ranging from kiosks and ATMs to car dashboards and medical equipment. It looks like the next version will be labeled with the Windows 8 branding across the board, though it's officially being called Windows Embedded v.Next in Microsoft's press release."

How's RIM doing with that?

Well, RIM is in deep trouble as far as I can tell. Even OpenQNX seems to be no where in sight.

How's Windows doing with the current versions intended to put on phones?

It must be small companies using embedded. What's the percentage of OS's in use worldwide or even USA? Less than .05% maybe? Is that too high?

I realize Ford may use parts of this in cars and trucks so that may be the single largest use.

Probably plenty of Windows Embedded being put on point of sale systems or ATMs, at the least (or maybe with ATMs that only was the case, I heard there's some push for standard version; anyway, lots of units with embedded should be still around)
