Windows And the award for Most Boring And Non-descriptive Press Release Title 2010 goes to Microsoft for "Microsoft Outlines Business Opportunities for Hardware Makers Across Windows Platform". The press release itself appears to be about as interesting as watching paint dry, until you reach that small part where it says Microsoft has released the first community technology preview of Windows Embedded Compact 7 (1).

Windows Embedded 7 and Windows Embedded Compact 7 (CE 7) are distinct products (the former has been shipped for a while).

I think that particular language implies that Windows CE 7 makes use of API features that were introduced with Windows 7 - making CE 7 "based" on windows 7 in the sense that it's a distinct Win32 platform, based on the Win32 implementation in Windows 7.
