    Windows8 Embedded Helps make the Internet of Things Possible



    Microsoft has previewed Windows8 embedded. This is the third Windows8 OS presented by Microsoft; the other two are Windows8 and Windows8 server. This product is different because it is used for small computational and sensor-based electronic components that collect data and automate simple actions. Embedded computing involves placing computer processors within common objects in order to collect data, guide operations and offer user interactivity.

    Where are embedded systems used?

    They are found in many consumer and industrial applications such as vending machines, refrigerators, digital music players, automobiles, and routine assembly line tasks. All of this is possible because as the cost and power requirements of microprocessors continue to drop, the use of sophisticated microcontrollers becomes more feasible for a wider variety of tasks. And the microcontrollers will need an operating system to run the hardware. That is where Windows8 embedded comes in.

    Linux probably has that market "stitched up" (just like Apple with Phones & Tablets).
