Windows CE can be an attractive alternative to the full Windows operating system offering system designers the ability to control power, size, and cost in a new product. The runtime license cost of the CE operating system alone can save as much as $150 over the license cost for standard Windows. Additionally, the componentized nature of CE is recognized as more stable and reliable than the Windows for desktop machines.
