Microsoft Releases Whistler Embedded Beta 1

Microsoft today announced the beta 1 release of the next embedded version of Microsoft 2000, currently code-named “Whistler Embedded.”

Whistler Embedded Beta 1 is focused on delivering embedded client scenarios, including Windows-based terminals, set-top boxes, and retail point-of-sale kiosks. The release of Whistler Embedded comes just 48 days after the release of Whistler beta.

The new development and authoring tools include Target Designer, enabling developers to select the necessary feature components from a database of all available Windows components, add them to the run-time configuration, and generate the customized operating system image. Component Designer enables embedded developers to design their own custom operating system components and add them to the run-time configuration. Database Manager allows embedded developers to import their custom-built operating system components into the Whistler Embedded database repository, and Target Analyzer aids developers in the design process by providing system information such as which are the critical device drivers of the intended target system. – Isaac Slepner
