Microsoft will officially unveil its embedded operating system based on Windows XP at the second annual Windows Embedded developers' conference in November.

Windows XP Embedded is a version of the XP desktop operating system built around software components. These are pieces of software code that developers can use to build their own operating systems for specific devices.

It will feature all of the functions new to Windows XP, including built-in instant messaging technology and Windows file protection. XP Embedded can be customised for small devices such as advanced set-top boxes, retail point-of-sale devices, and industrial automation machines.

Wyse Technology, a manufacturer of thin-client devices, has announced that it will be one of the first companies to build devices with Windows XP Embedded. Microsoft released a second beta version of the embedded operating system earlier this month.
