Microsoft launched the final phase of the development of Windows Embedded Standard 2011, known under the codename of Quebec and is based on Windows 7.
Evening February 15, Microsoft delivered its testers RC-version of Windows Embedded Standard 2011, which is now officially called Windows Embedded Standard 7. According to the e-mail message sent out yesterday elected testers, RC-assembly is available through Microsoft Connect.
Windows Embedded Standard is focused on OEM-manufacturers and manufacturers of specialized devices that wish to create a platform and applications that use the various components of Windows. In other words, is a modular version of Windows 7.
The first test assembly of the new operating system Microsoft introduced last September. At that time, company officials reported that the release of OS should be held in the second half of 2010, despite the name of the product.
Then the Windows Embedded Standard 2011, according to Microsoft, represented by an embedded version of the Platform for Vista. But not so long ago, the company's representatives confirmed that Windows Embedded Standard 7 will be a subset of Windows 7, not Vista. Among the functions identified in the CTP, were support for Group Policy Active Directory, enhanced interaction with Terminal Services and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), as well as support for such features in Windows 7, like Aero, Windows Touch, IE 8 and the other.
Not to be confused Windows Embedded Standard 7 with Windows Compact Edition 7, known under the codename of Chelan. Windows CE 7, release of which should also take place in this calendar year, is the operating system underlying Windows Mobile and Zune, as well as a number of third-party products.
