I'm not so sure that is scary. I have developed on WinCE for a very long time - because the hardware never changes, the systems are incredibly stable. Now, my code? Smile | :)

I would much rather have CE or XPe than Windows NT... NT Leaves Navy ship Dead in the water.[^]

of course this is a long time ago. The biggest issue I've seen for us is that users (factory workers, engineers, scientists, etc) use these control systems as if they were simple PCs. I've gotten back storage that was completely corrupted by viruses. Iran lost a number of centrifuges due to Stuxnet - almost certainly introduced when some intelligent person plugged in an unknown USB drive to a control system computer.
