    MS takes Windows 3.11 out of embed to put to bed

    (I was tempted to put this into news, but I decided against it - Fergal)

    First question: which electronics manufacturers embed Windows 3.11 for Workgroups in their products. Second question, and much more pressing: why?

    We ask merely because Microsoft has told world+dog it's withdrawing the ancient operating system from the embedded market. In November 2008. So this gives manufacturers plenty of time to move onto something more modern... like Windows 95, maybe.

    dont know ... never remember seeing 3.1 embeded even from a third party

    I have seen windows 95/98 embeded the company that made 98lite used to sell a kit. Been selling it for years

    of course windows 2000 and greater have had embedded versions, i remember stories of students at us unis hacking the campus ATMs that used windows and running media player etc.
