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,

Embedded can be useed in home environment (It's obviously aimed as a basis for industrial apps thus there are no real metro apps as such)

Datacentre, however, needs to be tweaked for Desktop experience - there is an app that does that for WS 2012 including R2...
