WinCE 6.0: Not A Proper Whiskey

Mike Hall has an interesting post [http://blogs.msdn.com/mikehall/archive/2006/09/19/763146.aspx] on MSDN about the codenames for Windows CE and how they came about. Here’s the key info…

at Windows CE 4.0 the o/s team and tools teams merged together to form a new, combined team - the codenames for the operating system and tools also changed at this time from trees/tools to Whiskeys

But the codename for CE 6.0 is Yamazaki! You’ve got 200 proper Scottish whiskies to choose from and you go Japanese. Why not Lagavulin or Caol Ila. You heathen. :)
