Windows Embedded for Point of Service is a version of Windows XP made for industry use and embedded units, such as ATMs. It was the earliest version of Windows Embedded that would deploy an image for setup and containing nearly all of the required files in it. However, everything was split into smaller images inside the base image, with core features being in one, drivers being in another, etc.
Windows Embedded for Point of Service was based on SP2, however a release with SP3 integrated was released on 8 October 2008.
Slightly over a month later, on 9 December 2008, it was replaced by Windows Embedded POSReady 2009, which is also based on Windows XP. It had more features compared to Windows Embedded for Point of Service, including Full Localization and XPS support if .NET Framework 3.5 or higher was installed.
