PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Microsoft will make a surprise announcement at the Nov. 1 launch of Windows CE 6.0, according to the Web's rumor-mill. In what would be its most substantial nod to the open-source movement, Microsoft is rumored to be opening up CE 6.0's entire kernel as 'shared source'. Update: It's official.

The Windows CE source code was available as shared source a few years ago, this is not a new development.

At the time (2-3 years ago) it was a big deal, am not sure this is a new development.
