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.

And they are actually supporting native code as well, as I have been hoping since I learned about WinRT.

Now it is possible to proper make use of native code across mobile devices.

I might just be getting a WP8 phone whenever they came out.
