Diego Campana November 9, 2014 Que tal el 3D ahi chinga o no chinga. Giggity Goebbels November 9, 2014 I am not talking about Windows Embedded.I am talking about Windows embedded industry.For industry there are 3 versions,which is the pro,pro retail and enterprise. Geekurville November 9, 2014 Embedded realy isn’t designed for home use. One, no real antivirus is suopported on the system. Two, As it is an embedded system, it is designed to use for one task such as use on a till or in a cashpoint. I would stick with 8 if I’m honest. Eagerestwolf November 9, 2014 Actually according to Microsoft the versions are Standard, Pro, and Industry Giggity Goebbels November 9, 2014 However,windows embedded industry still have 3 versions,just like windows embedded standard 7 which have 3 versions,the Premium,Embedded(kinda repeat),Consumer.They are usually called WES7P,WES7E,WES7C.I am very sure there is the pro and enterprise version.I read from wikipedia and other sources there is also a pro(retail) version. Mitch Hancock November 9, 2014 So there is no way to run any Metro applications? Did you try installing Chrome and using the “Relaunch Chrome in Windows 8 mode” option? I mean, what was the purpose of experimenting with installing an app (Firefox) that only runs on the desktop? Mitch Hancock November 9, 2014 There is absolutely a standard version. There is Pro, Standard, Industry, Handheld and System Center 2012 versions of Windows Embedded 8. QuadCore120 November 9, 2014 Can you get applications (apps for metro) for Windows Embedded 8 Pro Industry? I heard that it performs the same as Windows 8, but with extra modifications? Giggity Goebbels November 9, 2014 There is no standard version.there is only Pro,Pro(Retail) and enterprise. TheTrueM3ga November 9, 2014 Does Vanilla Windows 8 have any features for optimizing games compared to embedded? or would embedded be even better because the lack of useless shit? Mitch Hancock November 9, 2014 Windows Embedded 8 is not the same as Windows Embedded 7. The Wikipedia page for Windows Embedded 8 Industry doesn’t even support your claim, and it is also noted that the page cites no sources. Maybe you should try Microsoft’s website for the information, which is where I got it, because I belong to MSDN. Mitch Hancock November 9, 2014 Windows Embedded Industry is a SINGLE product, it is not a family of products, Windows Embedded is the family. The last version that had an Enterprise designation was Windows Embedded 7, and there was not a “pro,pro [sic] retail and enterprise” version, there Enterprise, Standard 7 and POSReady 7. Enterprise included 7 Pro and 7 Ultimate. POSReady was replaced with Windows 8 Embedded Industry. Comments are closed.
