Comments Windows Embedded 8
Whenever I meet new people, I try to guess the part of the world that their ancestors came from. A combination of their appearance and their name leads me to a guess, and I must admit I’m pretty good at it, at least from a regional perspective. English vs. Irish vs. Scottish? Yes. Italian vs. Greek? Yes again. Chinese vs Japanese? Yes. Add in Korean and Vietnamese? Some of the time. Swedish vs. Danish? Never!
With all this guessing going on, you can be sure that I also wonder about my own roots. My maiden name, Carras, is Greek (spelled Karras in Greece, since there is no ‘c’ in the Greek alphabet). On both sides, my parent’s parents immigrated to America from Greece. But what happened 500 years ago or more? And what makes Greek people Greek? It was only a matter of time before I sent a saliva sample to a DNA analysis company to tap into the power of big data to find out more about my maternal lineage. And find out, I did.

It’s been an incredibly productive autumn so far for us at Windows Embedded. The past few weeks have seen multiple major product and program announcements — the release of Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry, closely followed by its availability through volume licensing; Windows Server 2012 R2 for Embedded Systems’ general availability; and some really exciting changes to our partner program. You can bet we’ve been quite focused.
But after weeks of concerted effort, it’s good to pause and take a realistic look at the true progress we’re making in the industry. The Internet of Things (IoT) is evolving at breakneck speed; what role are Microsoft and Windows Embedded playing in that evolution? As early pioneers in this technology, evidence traditionally shows that Microsoft is leading the charge — and we’re not waiting for others to catch up.
That’s why I read with great interest Gartner’s just-released “SWOT” analysis of Microsoft’s position in the IoT space...
