Time-Saving Features of Windows Embedded Compact 7

Windows Embedded Compact 7 provides developers and designers with the tools and components they need to build powerful, appealing customized user interfaces (UIs) and quickly deploy them to meet ever-changing customer demands. The benefits of Silverlight for UI design within this version of Windows Embedded include a more seamless design and development process in which the roles and responsibilities between developer and designer are separate. The Internet Explorer Embedded feature enables the development of custom browsers for specific devices or markets. All these features of Compact 7 enable both quicker development and faster time-to-market.
