Well that whole Kin debacle should have only proved "Kin" was a bad name and WinCE should be laid to rest  but
 it probably just cemented in  Ballmer's mind that everything should run some  bastardized version of Windows 
while promoting the Windows name LOL.

P.S. anyone else notice that WinCE spells wince, wonder how that got by marketing :-)

Rumour has it, despite the fact that WP7 OS is completely different and has nothing to do with Windows, they had to name it _Windows_ Phone because that was the only way to get Ballmer's approval (he's got this delusion of Windows being everywhere.)
