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.

'Shared source' is pretty perverted

'Shared source' is a pretty perverted form of sharing.

"I'll give you a slice of my pizza, as long as you don't eat it. You can look at it and tell me if you think it could be better(i.e flies I should remove) and you can also see if it will go well with a soup you're making. But then you have to give it back to me so I can sell it back to you and don't try makin your own pizza after you've seen mine, because I'll know you stole my ideas"

Not really the kind of sharing I was taught as a kid.
