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.

Good prediction, Thom. I've always wondered why MS didn't built it on the NT kernel.

I'd say because the changes required were only just completed in the last couple of years. It would be interesting though to see what has been 'left out' when it comes to the Windows NT core - what actually makes up that core when compared to a traditional Windows build.
