"Microsoft has formed an alliance with 10 leading semiconductor makers with the aim of improving microprocessor support for its next-generation Windows CE operating system, IDG News Service has learned."
"The Windows Embedded Strategic Silicon Alliance (WESSA), which will be officially unveiled Tuesday at a Microsoft developer conference in Las Vegas, allows member companies access to the source code of Windows CE 3.0. By getting their hands on the source code, the companies will be able to better customize microprocessors to run the new operating system, which is also known by the code name Talisker."
