Please get any windows but the CE. You'll have a lot of problems, trust me. If you computer is powerful enough, go with windows 7, which is the most stable one in my opinion. Not that i'm bragging or anything, windows is not that great. If I were you, I'd buy a mac or just build a hackintosh. I bought a mac over a year ago and I can tell you, ain't gonna buy windows ever again

Windows CE is usaly loaded on thin clients that are preloaded with Flash memory. CE is sometimes used as a stand alone system. thin clients dont have an opital drive or usb ports. its kind of basic and basicly you cant do much with them unless you have built in programs. I recomend in getting a netbook.
