Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition with MSDN Embedded builds on traditional MSDN benefits by providing developers of embedded devices with a single subscription for access to a variety of Microsoft operating systems, technical support and other resources. The subscription includes the Visual Studio suite of software development tools and the following Windows Embedded platforms and technologies:

·         Windows Embedded CE, a 32-bit native, componentized, hard real-time operating system designed for small-footprint devices

·         Windows Embedded Standard, the next generation of Windows XP Embedded for advanced enterprise devices

·         Windows Embedded NavReady 2009, which provides innovative technologies to help build devices optimized for portable navigation

·         Windows Embedded POSReady 2009, a flexible operating system designed to seamlessly connect point-of-service (POS) solutions with peripherals, servers and services

 

This will gives us Windows CE and Windows Embedded Standard (Replacement for XP Embedded)
