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.

This is exciting news indeed. WP8 might just be when Microsoft turns the table on Android and iOS. This will not only simplify porting between Windows Phone and Windows but also from other OSes. Exciting times are ahead of us. GO MICROSOFT!!!
