"Microsoft is thumping the tub for both of its embedded
operating systems at the Applied Computing conference in Santa
Clara this week. But judging by attendees' confusion, Microsoft
might be wise to not exhibit the two under the same roof
"Both NTE, the embedded version of NT 4.0 with service pack 5
updates, and Windows CE recently got housed under the same Redmond
roof, the newly-created Embedded and Appliance platforms group.
"The trouble is that Microsoft has stripped down NT enough to start
gaining the kind of wins which the WinCE camp thought were
naturally its own. Such as gas pumps, and control equipment."
