Not quite what you mean, but I'm currently working on a project that's PIC18 (4k ram. OS? LOLWUT!!) on the backend, and UWP on the front.
Other options had been considered for the embedded part including an RPi or some other ARM board running both halves, but time to market requirements on our clients part meant there wasn't time to switch to a new hardware architecture.
Other than needing to add a work queue to avoid race conditions decoding messages when the board is being extra chatty I was able to use the UWP serial IO sample more or less out of the box. Other than being limited to FTDI chips (so no hardware COM port support) the UWP RS232 library has worked great out of the box. After the utter farce that was their implementation in the main .net framework they've apparently managed to get it right this time.
Hm, as an old time (since the 70's) embedded engineer, I've never used a Microsoft embedded OS. By the time CE came out I was already familiar with multiple RTOSes and CE was really lacking compared to the RTOSes I'd used. The CE display side was ok though since the RTOSes I used didn't have any display features built into the RTOS itself. Display for the RTOSes (if any) were in a separate library/module. However, in all my years of embedded development, I've never worked on a device that had a built in display so I never bothered to look at CE. Heck, the device I'm developing for now has, to me, lots of RAM (256k) and FLASH (1Mb). From what I remember of the old Windows CE and and Windows Embedded, it's not going to fit (compact version required 1Mb of RAM) and I'm betting their new IoT system isn't going to fit either. So to finalize, in my 'embedded' world, Microsoft was never in the race.
So it'll be weak and feeble, but thinks it's doing something important then.
It is used in schools, by their own claim
Educational software; it's not like it is a giant ad for WFP filled with their logo, no it actually teaches kids stuff. Like how it is important to find out what hungry refugees need before acting and changing a tire by turning the wrench with the LMB
Also the game states that it costs 19ct per day to feed a kid. That means one normal hamburger per week at MacDonalds should be plenty.
