Microsoft rolls out Windows CE 6

May 9th, 2006 by Patrick S

Microsoft will unveil a beefier version of Windows CE during a keynote at its annual Mobile & Embedded Developer’s Conference (MEDC) in Las Vegas, May 9. Windows CE 6 offers a higher capacity for complex applications, fueling “more intelligent devices that offer advanced multimedia and Web services, and wireless networking,” the company claims.

The upgrade sports a redesigned kernel that implements a significant increase in the number of simultaneous application processes, along with increased per-process virtual memory addressability.
It seems that it will also support Windows .NET Compact Framework 2.0, the next version of the .NET Compact Framework (CF). Version 2.0 will provide backward compatibility with applications written for .NET CF version 1 (good for Dev’s)

May 9-release of Windows CE 6 comes on the tenth anniversary of the original introduction of the OS. 😀
