In what may be another attempt to gain some kind of foothold in the handheld and embedded-OS market, rumors are floating that Microsoft will open the source
News Feeling pressure from Linux in the embedded-device market, Microsoft Corp. is contemplating giving away Windows CE to some developers for free.

Microsoft Corp. could make public its plans to open the Windows CE source base as soon as its Windows Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHEC) in late April, sources claim.

set of converging circumstances, Linux could end up as the preeminent operating system for Intel's 64-bit Itanium chip, due in the second half of this year. Microsoft is holding to the party line that it will have a 64-bit Windows release ready to ship once Intel officially releases Itanium. But according to an internal Microsoft memo, dated Jan. 1, 2000, viewed by Sm@rt Reseller , the software company expects to release Beta 2 of Whistler, its next version of Windows following Windows 2000, as its first
