Microsoft Corp. will provide an unprecedented amount of source code to licensees for its latest Windows CE operating system for electronic devices and allow them to own innovations they make to the software, the firm said on Monday.
Developers will be able to license one copy of Windows CE 5.0 for just US$3 to begin working on any changes they wish to make to the code, and manufacturers start paying a fee only when they begin shipping commercial products.
Anyone have some thoughts on how much the CE code base shares with the regular code base?
Can you get the common language runtime for CE?
I could see them doing this with the regular windows OS .. if it wasn't for the security issues.
Seems like a good move to encourage embedded developers to use WinCE instead of linux.
