Windows CE 6.0 Launched Officially

Congratulations to the Windows Embedded team. The virtual launch event went off without a hitch this morning and Mike Hall stole the show again, wearing his "7 year old hand-painted, limited edition (Mike told me there were only 10 in the world), Windows CE 3.0 launch vest".

here's a picture of him with Todd Warren showing off one of the cool Windows XP Embedded USB boot feature.


you can watch the recording of the launch event here:



here's a closeup look at Mike's Whacky Silk Vest. All the logos were actually hand-painted using wax. Time consuming fur sure!
