Redmond-based technology giant Microsoft has just introduced the full version of Windows Embedded 8, a special version of its operating system that’s specifically aimed at embedded hardware and systems.
The first preview came out in November, but the company only rolled out the stable build today, while the Windows Embedded 8 Industry SKU is scheduled to be unveiled on April 1.
In addition, Microsoft introduced a new website called GetWindowsEmbedded8.com
to provide businesses and OEMs with download links and other resources that could help them deploy the new operating system.
“From the rich, familiar experience of Windows to integrated management, analytics and cloud platforms, Windows Embedded 8 coupled with the full breadth of Microsoft technologies for intelligent systems helps enterprises gain lasting competitive advantages in retail, manufacturing, healthcare and a variety of industries,” said Kevin Dallas, general manager of Windows Embedded at Microsoft.
