10.1. What Is the Microsoft Smart Display?

Microsoft defines the Smart Display as a wireless touch-screen monitor that allow you to access your computer from anywhere in your home. Think of it as just your conventional LCD monitor, but with Wi-Fi built in and the ability to write on the screen directly.

On the technical side, a Smart Display uses the Windows CE for Smart Display operating system, a version based on Windows CE .NET 4.1. On the host computer, you need Windows XP Professional Edition (Service Pack 1). This is because the Smart Display makes use of Remote Desktop for displaying the output remotely, which is available in the Windows XP Professional edition but not in the Home edition. This is shown in Figure 10-1.
