Re: Newbie confused: PPC/WinCE/Windows Mobile...
It has versions 1 through 5.
P/PC and Windows Mobile are "Platforms" based on Windows CE. Windows Mobile
succeeded the P/PC as a new brand name. Just as P/PC came after Palm-size
PC, and Palm-size PC after Palm PC (for legal reasons) and Palm PC was a
spin off release from the original Handheld PC:
A Platform is more apt to the model of how Red Hat and Mandrake relate to
Linux, They are based on the Linux code, but come with their own User
Interface, applications, customisations and features.
There is a historical overview of the versions here:
