It says it runs "Customized Win 32 Applications". It also says it runs on the ARM.

Would you have to recompile the code or doesit do some sort of emulation?

The Windows CE api is not 100% equal to what Win32 offers, since its tuned for small devices, hence the need to modify the application in some cases.

For example, in the early versions there were certain limits for the amount of running processes.

The subset of Win32 that WinCE offers can be targeted to any of the supported platforms, but you would need to recompile the code.
