Hello all

Can someone tell me the difference between all these OS ?

I am not looking for feature difference but what they are exactly.

Is pocket PC a new release of Windows CE ?

I just purchase a Dell Axim iand it came with (in the About icon in the
control pannel)

Microsoft Pocket PC
Version 3.0.11171
Copyright 1996-2001

It is brand new and it did not come with Pocket PC 2000, nor 2002, nor 2003.
I do not understand all these different OS names.

I wish to begin developping with VB.NET. Everything I read about developping
in VB.NET for Visual Studio make reference to Pocket PC 2002 and 2003, never
3.0.

I search and search MS web site but could not find any explanation.

Can anyone help

Thanks

Pocket PC is a platform, built on top of Windows CE. You can see the Pocket
PC platform as a bundle of applications and a graphical user interface on top
of an underlying operating system.
Pocket PC 2000 and Pocket PC 2002 were both platform built on top of Windows
CE 3
Pocket PC 2003 or -better- Windows Mobile Software 2003 for Pocket PC, is a
platform built on top of Windows CE 4


This version number indicates Pocket PC 2002.
