The Windows Embedded operating systems brings the versatility of the Windows platform to embedded applications. Used in a variety of applications, from car systems to cameras, the operating system enables both real-time support and the ability to take advantage of many Windows subsystems and technologies, such as .NET.

At its core, the Embedded platform offers a set of foundational OS components. In order to save deployment space, developers can then customize the systems that build on top of that layer. With granular configuration options, the OS and application can be tweaked to meet the needs of the target environment.

Most Windows Embedded applications are built in C++, due to its performance and flexibility. Although .NET can be used, there are certain constraints that should be followed when programming .NET apps. Due to the virtual machine that runs .NET apps, it's vital to optimize for performance. Real-time operations can be especially affected, as it is often challenging to trigger events at a granular frequency of less than one millisecond. Still, with clever implementation, even that is possible.

Recent iterations of Windows Embedded have been divided by application. Automotive, Point of Sale, Navigation, and Mobile devices each have their own platform. Microsoft has even released a server version, for dedicated rack-mount server devices. Each of these is a customized version of the Windows Embedded core, and applications can often be ported from one version to another with relative ease.
