Microsoft Sends Next Generation of CE to Beta Testers

Microsoft Corp. began a limited beta test this week of its next generation of the Windows CE operating system, code-named "Talisker."

The Beta 1 version was delivered to about 300 testers. A second beta is expected in the third quarter, with a release to manufacturing by the end of the year. Microsoft hasn't officially named the follow-on to Windows CE 3.0.

Improvements over Windows CE in Talisker include support for Bluetooth, Kerberos, Secure Sockets Layer, LDAP 3.0, Universal Plug and Play and USB drivers for storage, printers and network cards.
