Windows This is the kind of news just tailor-made for OSNews. After 16 years of trusty service, the venerable Windows CE will be history as far as Microsoft's mobile operating system offering goes - the next major version of Windows Phone will use the NT kernel from Windows 8. As a heavy former Windows PocketPC Mobile CE Ultimate SP2 Edition user, this makes me sad. As a fan of the NT kernel, this makes me happy.

"Windows PocketPC Mobile CE Ultimate SP2 Edition." Just so you know how bad it is, I seriously spent several minutes trying to figure out whether that's a real Microsoft product name, or a parody of a Microsoft product name.

Now, I'm 90% certain it's a parody.
