Windows 3.11 not dead... yet

For those of you who thought Windows 3.11 was dead, well think again - it's been sold to OEMs all this while and Microsoft is finally killing it off this November. It makes you wonder why they didn't use Windows Mobile/Windows CE/Pocket PC.

If you're trying to build embedded devices, you may want to take the leap to Windows XP Embedded. There are a lot of public transportation buses powered by Windows XP for their route map system and HSBC uses it for their ATMs (when they do have downtime, it's fun to watch) so Windows XP will be around for embedded devices for quite a while.
