The "Post-PC" era may be near at hand, according to the findings of a recently completed market study conducted by eTForecasts. The study projects
that Windows CE-based devices may outsell Windows-based PCs within 5 years. According to the report, Microsoft has made "tremendous progress" in
positioning its Windows CE and derivative operating systems for use in a broad range of handheld and mobile devices such as PDAs and Smartphones, and
only embedded Linux is poised to represent a major long-term across-the-board competitor to Microsoft.
