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.

I'll believe that when I see it

There you go: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_NT_4.0
(and also 3.51 - PowerPC NT has only been around ~15 years; so yeah, you could easily miss it)

Dropping it was a matter of market realities, circumstances. NT was always quite portable (in fact, it didn't start on x86).
