    Hi!

    Does Windows 8.1 Embedded Industry Pro get updates at the same time as the W8.1 pro? I just want a bare windows 8.1. Which version of it should i choose?

    Thanks

    @mehmetalat Windows 8.1 Embedded Industry Pro is a fine OS. It gets same updates as W8.1 Pro at the same time.

    In my experience it boots faster then normal Pro. All programs that i use work on IndPro as expected.

    No, it's like regular Pro (with extra features but some restrictions)

    the difference between embedded & normal 8.1 versions in terms of support timelines isn't much
