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 don't really blame them, if we're going by the quality of the Skype client on Windows / Linux .. the code had to be damn near undecipherable when it got into the hands of MSFT after the acquisition.


I imagine that Skype's code is indecipherable by design. I saw a presentation that showed the methods skype uses to prevent any tampering:
