  • 12000+ components to choose from for customized OS images.
  • New functionality: NETFx 3.5, Silverlight, IE7, WMP 11, RDP 6.1.
  • 10 years of professional support, starting at RTM in September 2008.
  • Smooth upgrade path from XP Embedded.
  • Toolkit Replacement Program: Buy the XP Embedded toolset (Windows Embedded Studio) today, get the WES 2009 toolkit for free when it RTMs.
