Win 7 Reaches Embedded Mart

There is now an embedded version of Windows 7 aimed at thin computers, industrial devices and other machines that used embedded OSes. Both HP and Wyse have already announced thin clients using the new OS.

What does this mean? My guess is that as reliable as embedded-OS devices are, they will become more so with Win 7.

Windows 7 Embedded also now supports Media Center, giving it a play in set-top boxes and other entertainment devices.

Am I wasting my time telling you about embedded operating systems, or do they have a role to play in your shop? Come clean at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
