"Microsoft Corp., Redmond, Wash., will offer Windows NT 4.0 in
an embedded version for thin-client vendors, company executives
"Microsoft divided the Windows-based thin-client market into two
standard families. The Windows-Based Terminal (WBT) standard, based
on Windows CE, currently is being used by thin-client vendors. WBT
Professional will be based on Windows NT Embedded 4.0 when it
becomes commercially available early next year..."

offer a browser, customers would have to go to something like Linux
and another browser," Blatnik said."
