Microsoft is step closer to delivering the final version of the Windows 7-based version of its Embedded Standard 2011 product codenamed “Quebec.” On February 15th, Microsoft released the Release Candidate (RC) version of Windows Embedded Standard 2011 named “Windows Embedded Standard 7.” Windows Embedded Standard 7 is not to be confused with Windows Compact Edition 7 (the product codenamed “Chelan”). The Compact Edition product, also due out this year, is what’s been embedded inside Windows Mobile and the Zune product lines, as well as in a variety of third-party devices. “Windows Embedded Standard is targeted at OEMs and specialized device makers who want to build platforms and applications that use various Windows components. In other words, it is the componentized version of Windows 7.”
