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.

Although this is an interesting move from Microsoft, I doubt this will change much for Windows Phone's popularity. First WP7 was going to be the game changer. Then they said WP7.5 was really going to be the OS that could make a dent in the competition. And now it's WP8 that's really REALLy going to be the one to change it all? It's always the next version.
