Microsoft has provided platforms and operating systems for embedded devices for decades. As new offerings such as Windows 10 IoT have become available, our customers and partners are increasingly interested in the advanced security, platform, and cloud connectivity features that these OS provide. Customers moving from most earlier editions of Windows, like Windows XP and Windows 7, can do so with little effort because of binary compatible applications. Other operating systems, like Windows CE, require device builders to modify source code. Porting applications like this can be challenging.
To help these customers move to Windows 10 IoT and harness the full power of the intelligent edge including artificial intelligence and machine learning, Microsoft is developing technology that will allow most customers to run their existing, unmodified Windows CE applications on Windows 10 IoT while they continue to invest in updating their applications. You can learn more about how this technology works in the recent IoT Show episode Modernizing Windows CE Devices.
