BETA: Windows Embedded Standard 8 Community Technology Preview

imageOver the past year, Microsoft has been discussing the vast possibilities offered by the emergence of a new category within the traditional embedded market — intelligent systems. Microsoft outlined a product road map for its intelligent systems vision. 

As part of that plan, Microsoft is making the Windows Embedded Standard 8 community technology preview (CTP) available on the x86 architecture.  The Windows Embedded Standard 8 CTP is an important step in giving developers and enterprises an opportunity to evaluate Windows 8 technologies for connecting specialized devices to powerful back-end software.  With the recent release of the Windows 8 Consumer Preview and Windows Server 8 beta, along with this week’s launch of SQL Server 2012 and Windows Embedded Standard 8 CTP, Microsoft is offering a good look at a new, common set of technologies that spans specialized devices, servers, PCs and applications.
