Microsoft Unveils Windows Server IoT 2019
February 27, 2019 / Redmond Media Group
Microsoft announced on Tuesday that it has a Windows Server IoT 2019 product, among other details, at this week's Embedded World conference in Nuremberg, Germany. Windows Server IoT 2019 appears to be a new edition, adding to the current Windows 10 IoT product line with its Core and Enterprise editions. The IoT name, standing for "Internet of Things," is a rebrand of Microsoft's venerable "Windows Embedded" product line, which is typically used by software and original equipment manufacturing (OEM) partners to build specialized devices. Under the old Windows Embedded brand, there had always been a Server edition. Now, almost four years after the IoT rebrand, it's back in the form of Windows Server IoT 2019. Microsoft apparently skipped a "Windows Server IoT 2016" edition.
