Microsoft's Embedded division is now being "aligned" with the Management and Security Division inside of Microsoft Server and Tools Business. Here's Microsoft's explanation as to why this move makes sense:

"Moving forward, Microsoft will deliver end-to-end solutions from specialized devices to cloud and meet evolving needs of OEMs building devices and enterprises managing devices — this includes accessing data and consuming services, as well as exposing services used by other devices, applications and cloud services."

"Simply, Windows Embedded's alignment with STB will help OEMs take advantage of the tremendous opportunity to develop devices built with advantages of Windows and harness extensive set of Microsoft technologies for inherent security and connectivity. This'll empower users with access to apps and data at anytime, anywhere and on any device. For enterprises, this also translates into the opportunity to more effectively manage devices as part of their IT infrastructures in the cloud or locally."
