Soon, I expect to see robust yet relatively inexpensive devices powered by Windows XP, Windows XP Embedded or Windows XP Media Center Edition showing up in hospitals around the world and in other places too; like kitchens, living rooms or bedrooms, where people need simple, low maintenance yet powerful tools for communication, collaboration, education, entertainment, security, monitoring, and access to services. For seniors, the disadvantaged, people with disabilities and others on the digital divide, this can’t come soon enough. And for patients in the hospital? They just might never want to leave!
