    you *could* build a Windows CE operating system image that boots and runs on a desktop PC (one of the supported CE platforms is "CEPC") – the operating system architecture is completely different to the desktop Windows XP operating system, desktop applications will not run on Windows CE, you would need to write or port applications to run on the Windows CE operating system.
