getting started

Hello everyone. I have just joined this forum to seek advice.
I have worked with embedded systems for about 15 years: 8/16/32 bit microprocessors, with small RTOS, e.g. Keil for ARM, mainly using C and Assembler.
I have been out fo the market for about three years and want to get back in.
I think the knowledge I have is slightly out of date. I need to skill up on either Linux or Windows embedded (or similar).
How do you suggest I get started on this? I am really at a loss here and am asking quite seriously.
I am more familiar with Windows, having designed web sites using c#, asp net for a few years too, so perhaps windows embedded would make sense.
How should I start? One route is to go back to college for a while, but I don;t really have the time or resources.
Perhaps there is some hardware I can buy, and a good book, and just get going?
Has anyone else faced these challenges (moving from the old to the new).
Any serious help / advice / pointers would be appreciated.
