    Can I Install Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Pro?


    Hi EF!

    I have a dreamspark account and in that I am provided with the Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Pro . So, I was thinking if there are any differences in that one and also would I be able to use it like a Home User?

    I am also getting the Server 2012 Datacentre Edition. So which one should I go with? I plan to use VM's in the future though.

    Cheerio,
