    Can someone tell me, besides Embedded features & licensing & smaller footprint & pre-installed Store apps, what are the differences between Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Pro and Windows 8.1 Pro?

    Do they have the same feature set? For a normal user, who does mild gaming, will installing Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Pro as a 'daily desktop OS' be fine?

    Installed and activated on a slightly old desktop. It's the same as Windows 8.1 Pro lol! Can't see any difference at all! Supports VHD booting too! Yay! :D

    That was my dad's desktop. I had only about half an hour to play with a new OS. Therefore asked here before installing. And when you said you found no problems using it as daily OS, so gave it a shot! :D
