    It's a not supported configuration. And the footprint isn't smaller anyway....

    The embedded flavour is just designed for people who create some kind of machine with fixed hardware and only running fixed software. Think any kind of POS terminal (e.g. ticket machines at a train station). It also brings additional support for software upgrade and other stuff. In the end you just run one app in kiosk more with specific hardware that isn't available on a comsumer level (read: built by you for this special purpose only).

    It has no advantage whats so ever for a HTPC. Win7 always have the same footprint. It just bringt additional stuff help you managed an embedded product. And other stuff is not included as not needed. It largely difference in licensing. It's cheaper compare to a full Win7.

    Win7 Embedded Compact = For Apps written in Silverlight. MP will not run on Compact like 90%+ of all Desktop software.
