WEPOS is here

It was announced last night – Windows Embedded for Point of Service (WEPOS) is a reality.  Based on XPE SP2, WEPOS is a retail-optimised platform (not my term)… you know, I should talk in my own voice…

WEPOS is an installable OS, like XP, but it’s based on XPE SP2, and it’s designed for POS terminals and other devices used in retail.  It’s not just our POS macro component with a lot of HW support wrapped in an installer – it’s got some extras that the WEPOS team put together to make devices live better in a retail world.  These guys worked hard to get this thing ready and out the door, and I for one am glad to see it come out.

The MS Press article is kinda dry, but the links take you to cool places.
