We’ve been working hard in the past few months to deliver the Windows Embedded 8.1 update to our customers and partners. In June, we made available the Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Release Preview and followed with the RTM in August. Our updated 8.1 platforms will be generally available on Oct. 17, simultaneously with the Windows 8.1 release.
Here’s a brief overview of the update strategy for Windows Embedded 8 with Windows Embedded 8.1:

Getting time with Windows Embedded’s OEM engineering lead John Coyne can be a feat in itself, but Avnet’s Steve Gereb managed to lock him down for this interview published last week on their Intelligent System blog.
It’s worth a read for anyone looking to build devices and services with Windows Embedded 8.1. Coyne talks about some of the technical advantages of the new, modern OS, how to work within Windows 8.1 product activation procedures, and how the new world of Windows Embedded allows developers to light up a new solution in as little as 45 minutes. Check it out!
Comments Intelligent Systems
On his blog, Microsoft’s Chief Evangelist Steve Guggenheimer announced the company has made available RTM builds for Windows 8.1, Windows 8.1 Pro and Windows Server 2012 R2 through TechNet and MSDN, with Windows 8.1 Enterprise to follow later this month. The Visual Studio 2013 Release Candidate is also ready for download here.
As part of this move, today we are announcing that Windows Embedded 8.1 RTM and the Windows Server 2012 R2 for Embedded Systems RTM builds are now available to MSDN subscribers. You can find the available bits here, and begin testing and evaluating the new release immediately. Learn more about what Windows Embedded 8.1 brings to the table in my recent blog post. You can also learn more about Windows Server 2012 R2 for Embedded Systems through the recent Server blogs.
Today, the Windows team shared that we have started releasing Windows 8.1 to our hardware partners, including Windows Embedded 8.1. This important and exciting milestone builds on the platform alignment we discussed during the release of Windows Embedded 8 by marking Microsoft’s first simultaneous release of Windows across devices – from the smallest tablets to the most lightweight notebooks to versatile 2-in-1s, as well as industry devices and intelligent systems for business.
In a previous blog, we shared that we would deliver updates to Windows Embedded 8, bringing the latest Windows 8.1 innovations to industry devices, in a number of areas: enhanced security, deeper lockdown control, expanded peripheral capabilities, better manageability, updated user experience, and improved connectivity and mobility.
Today, we’d like to share with you how Windows Embedded 8 delivers value through industry devices:
