Windows Embedded Standard 8 CTP2

Yesterday Microsoft announced the availability of the second Windows Embedded Standard 8 community technology preview (CTP) at Computex.


Windows Embedded Standard 8 is a flexible OS that provides the capabilities of Windows 8 with additional features, to support embedded device requirements:

· Compliance, security & lockdown features

· Custom branding

· Management and servicing of the OS and applications

· Modularity

The CTP 2 release delivers performance improvements and new capabilities for OEM partners to evaluate for future devices:

· Increased functionality in lockdown features (support for touch screen keyboards to the Keyboard Filter and a Gesture Filter to control touch based input)

· System Center Configuration Manager 2012 and Forefront support for WES8 devices

· Branding: device makers can now hide the startup logo, the progress indicator and the user tile during device startup and logon

· Support for 7 additional languages

CTP2 can be downloaded here.

I immediately installed it and I'm starting "playing" & testing this new version.

Be tuned to get my comments!
