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.

we explored fullscreen UIs. Now I want to see how MS will pull off complex apps in Metro style.

It feels so weird all this alternate design coming from a engineering oriented company. This year is gonna be sweet! ;)
