Aren't we supposed to be moving on from Windows 10?
I'm presuming here that NXP's devices don't meet the hardware requirements for Windows 11?
Windows 10 – as we pointed out last week – still rules Microsoft's user base, as now evidenced by the latest arrival of Windows 10 IoT Enterprise on NXP hardware. Windows 10 IoT Enterprise is very much the full-fat version of Windows 10, including full application compatibility and developer access to .NET tools, WinForms, WPF …
Shhhhh... Don't say that or the MS bots will be all over your post downvoting it.
Sooner or later (or maybe never?) MS will have to take Windows on ARM seriously.
Apple has shown what is possible in terms of a Desktop system on a SOC. We know that a whole heap of other makers are working their socks off trying to keep up with Apple.
The ARM market is maturing fast. If MS does not wake up then, and it won't be the first time that they have missed the boat. Remember how the TCP/IP stack was a bolt on?
Most embedded devices run older versions of software. It took forever for XP to stop being used in such things. When they use Android, it's always something like Android 8.1 if they're modern. When they use Linux, prepare to see a 4 at the beginning of the version (if you're lucky). As such, using Windows 10 is entirely in character for this area. Probably, Microsoft would have liked to use whatever Windows 11 variant they have planned for this level but realized that they needed to use something established if they wanted any OEMs to use it.
