Windows Embedded Standard 2011 (“Quebec”) CTP Available Now!

Article from Windows Embedded Standard blog by Shayna :

Have you been itching to get more information about what is coming next from the Windows Embedded Standard team? Well now is your chance! Earlier today we announced the release of a Community Technology Preview (CTP) for Windows Embedded Standard 2011 (this is the official product name of our next release that was code named “Quebec”).

To download the CTP simply go to http://connect.microsoft.com/windowsembedded and sign in with your Windows Live ID. If you haven’t previously participated in one of our CTPs, you will need to add the “Windows Embedded Standard” program to your Connection Directory. As you are playing around with the product please submit your bugs and suggestions using the Feedback forms on Connect, and you can chat with the rest of the community and members of our team on the MSDN forums specifically set up for Windows Embedded Standard 2011!

Unleash the power of Windows 7 technologies in Windows Embedded Standard 2011 using a solid platform that fits into existing customer infrastructure. To quote Kevin Dallas, general manager of Windows Embedded this “CTP empowers our worldwide ecosystem of OEMs, partners and developers to take advantage of the next generation platform’s enhanced Windows 7-based features and provide feedback, prior to its general release to manufacturing. We encourage the embedded community to take full advantage of the CTP’s availability and join in our excitement as we look ahead to the future availability of Windows Embedded platforms incorporating Windows 7 technologies.”

You’ll see lots more blog posts in the coming weeks covering various feature areas of Windows Embedded Standard 2011 – so stay tuned!
