.NET (dotGNU too) "Microsoft is turning the source code for its embedded .Net Micro Framework over to the community and slowly withdrawing from that business, company officials are confirming. On the rumored list of teams most heavily impacted by second wave of Microsoft layoffs announced on May 5 was the .Net Micro Framework team - as well as the related MSN Direct unit. Indeed, both groups were affected, a Microsoft spokesperson confirmed on May 6."

Right, but you should read that as:

"The .Net Micro Framework is one of a number of embedded platforms (Others include Windows CE and Windows XPe) Microsoft has licensed to third parties and made available to teams inside the company."

Rather than:

"The .Net Micro Framework is one of a number of embedded platforms Microsoft has licensed to third parties, and made available to teams inside the company, such as the Windows CE and Windows XPe teams."

I see where the confusion comes in though, now that you point out that particular paragraph, the wording is pretty ambigous.
