Following on from the I’d never use Windows CE or Windows XP Embedded post one of the requests that came up was for the list of features or technologies contained in Windows CE 5.0 (and a comparison against Windows CE 4.2), one reason to choose an embedded operating system may be that the technologies you need for your final design ship with the operating system – this of course saves time and effort in having to license the technology from a 3rd party, and of course integrate the technology with your design – Here’s a link to a PDF file which contains a comparison of Windows CE 4.2 and 5.0 features.

For just the listing of what's new in Windows CE 5.0, go here.
