    Windows NavReady 2009 Embedded... reeks of Streetdeck

    Just received a email from a GPS website about a just newly released version of a Windows Embedded NavReady 2009. I searched for it and found a link:

    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/embedded/default.mspx

    If you click on the GPS receiver on the far right hand side of the screen, it'll open up a video which demonstrates the new OS. Watching the video, as it opens up the "non-QWERTY" keyboard and then "dials a bluetooth" god forbid phone... the buttons that are shown really look very similar if not identical to Streetdeck.... Only thing is will this work on the non embedded type systems and/or OSes... What do you all think... is this the "big secret" maybe we'll get a response in another "30 x 10 to the power of X days"... smiling... and hoping.... maybe for nothing...

    M$FT isn't above lifting design elements or outright copying the "look and feel" of a UI but this is nothing to do with SD.

    NavReady is a realtime OS (RTOS) designed to run on ARM (formerly of Intel) processors. It doesn't run an x86-compatbile instruction set let alone provide DirectX or .NET APIs which SD relies on.

    SD isn't an OS, it's an application running on top of an OS.
