Microsoft Offers Preview of Next Windows CE
Microsoft Offers Preview of Next Windows CE: "Windows CE 6 has been completely rearchitected with a new kernel and support for up 32,000 simultaneous processes, a huge jump over the previous limitation of 32. Each of these software processes can take advantage of its own 2 GB address space, Microsoft says. These changes, along with the ability for developers to target Windows CE 6 applications using a plug-in for Visual Studio 2005, will make Windows CE 6 more viable for next generation devices, such as set-top boxes, GPS-based mobile phones, PDAs, and various vertical devices targeting markets such as industrial automation."
