Windows After yesterday's TV advertisement, Microsoft finally unveiled the pricing for its Surface tablet - the ARM Windows RT version that is. The cheapest Surface - 32GB without touch cover - will set you back $499. They're aiming straight for iPad pricing here, ignoring the popular cheaper Android offerings. Update: only available in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom and the United States. As usual.

"PS. And WinCE is moderately widely deployed - the thing about ~embedded stuff: you don't see it."

...until it crashes.

Sorry I couldn't help myself ;)

Many devices I'd have never thought to be running windows until seeing them crash.

Or until seeing OS/2 crash and reboot...

Or until seeing Linux crash and reboot...

Or people cursing their routers or Androids...

Windows might be possibly the most popular OS driving large displays (say, because they are conceptually similar to a desktop computer, easy to grasp that way, easier handed by a typically barely-trained stuff), of course such will be more visible.

And the thing about parent poster - he almost certainly wouldn't be able to speculate even about the likely top 10 embedded OS ...what can he tell about WinCE deployment?
