The comments are pretty hilarious, though they stray far from our beloved OS.

Microsoft has taken an eternity to begin to learn on this. For some reason they could never work out that if you release a product with the year of release in the name, it sounds old, backwards and dated within 12 months.

Remember that old Windows CEMeNT joke...
I've always thought CE meant Community Edition.

Someone put together a YouTube video about CEMeNT. I actually downloaded it a long time ago but can't find the download at the moment. Here's the link though:

yep I saw it yesterday. Made me giggle.

Especially the
"taught the people to turn the computer off by pressing a button marked start".

I was like come to think of it, that's true....

The video was really a critique of Vista, but they couldn't resist putting together the letters from the other three systems - something they couldn't do with the versions using numbers (95, 98, 7, 10, etc).

Yep.

I remember Vista was hated, but 7 was loved by many.

I wonder how 11 will turn out. Didn't try it out yet.

I still have a soft spot for XP, since it syncs well with most CE devices through ActiveSync 3.8, and was loaded with multimedia capability.

I just stumbled on another article talking about the history of Windows CE, and Microsoft's love-hate relationship with its own creation. And a very familiar figure in the Windows CE world was interviewed for the article.

I didn't know that was syndicated. It's based on https://www.hpcfactor.com/news/?iid=833

Sorry for the trauma everyone

Interesting review... rather chaotic history ... made me Wince. CE was feared as a parasite of sorts?
Pleased to see Chris's comments/insight in the mix!
