Windows Embedded 8 Industry scheduled for release first week of April

Two short months after issuing a Release Preview, Microsoft’s fully realized Windows Embedded 8 is ready for the POS terminals it helps to operate. The OS, heavily utilized across healthcare, manufacturing and retail industries, (and mostly ignored by the mainstream) will be made available for download the first week of April, allowing businesses to leverage Microsoft’s various services, as well as the abstract “Internet of Things” — whatever that means. And to help educate industry partners as to the advantages of its Embedded platform, Microsoft’s also created a series of informative videos for interested parties to peruse. So, if you’re unclear where Windows Embedded 8 fits into your business, or you just want to know what it actually does, hit up the source while you wait for that Spring release.
