I'd like to know more about what "embedded" really means here. Is it called embedded because it has all components it needs to run inside, meaning it's own web server (and not reliant on Windows IIS), or other things like .Net frameworks, or SQL, Apache or Gnome? Or is it embedded because it provides source code for compiling towards almost any host system? Or both? It's just the term embedded gets thrown around a lot, but no real clarification on what it means.Thanks.
New VMS 'Orchid' Released
New VMSes are fairly rare. However, one VMS provider, IP Configure, is releasing a brand new VMS, called "Orchid [link no longer available]".
The company is touting it as 'built to run anywhere'.
Using an "external" server for a service, for say something like serviing up web interface, wasn't exactly what I was wondering. I assumed everything ran local on the one host. Unless you mean not external to the Orchid program (like a 3rd party software program), but native to Orchid program itself...?
In any case, an excellant summary and I appreciate it. Thanks!
