News: Code Name Trivia
I've updated the Windows CE history overview and thought I'd provide some trivia for you.
The codename's of the Windows CE Host Synchronisation software were also based around a mythological theme, just like the CE versions themselves.
Handheld PC Explorer 1.x - Codename Pegasus (The Winged Horse. Pegasus is the same code name as CE 1.0x)

Windows CE Services 2.x - Codename Minerva (The Roman goddess of wisdom, invention, arts, and prowess aka Athena)

ActiveSync 3.0 & 3.1 - Codename Xena (Someone's been watching too much Television)

ActiveSync 3.5, 3.6 & 3.7 - Codename Medusa (The Gorgon who's hair was of serpents & turned all who looked to stone)
So, who said Microsoft don't have a sense of humor. For more on Windows CE codename's, see:
