“Microsoft today announced via its website the general availability of the Windows Embedded 8 family of operating systems. Extending Windows 8 technologies to a spectrum of edge devices, Windows Embedded 8 helps enterprises capitalize on the Internet of Things with the platform to capture, analyze and act on valuable data across IT infrastructures.” So, this is NT-based, and not CE-based, right? Even though I’m currently researching and writing about Psion and Symbian, I’m dreading the day I have to sort through the mess that is Microsoft’s mobile and embedded systems. Just check the page for Windows Embedded 8, and look at those names. The heck?
