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.

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