It's not so much mangled as that computing has got so much cheaper and
smaller and single board computers have become available, so that now it's
perfectly feasible to put a RPi Zero in a lot of things, and it's still
perfectly reasonable to call that an embedded system. The issue being that
an RPi is a proper computer capable of running a desktop OS, so is
completely different to what Wouter wants to refer to.
