									New Runtime Licensing Model for
Windows CE .NET 4.2
The following is a comprehensive listing of the new runtime licensing model associated with
Microsoft® Windows® CE .NET 4.2.

The new pricing of Windows CE .NET 4.2 gives device manufacturers enhanced levels of flexibility
in utilizing the rich features of Windows CE .NET 4.2 across the breadth of their product lines,
while helping to reduce development and licensing costs. There are three (3) runtime license
options for Windows CE .NET 4.2:


   Windows CE .NET 4.2 Core
   Windows CE .NET 4.2 Professional
   Windows CE .NET 4.2 Professional Plus

The Windows CE .NET 4.2 Core option is the newest member of the Windows CE .NET family of
licenses and is offered at $3 US (estimated retail price). Windows CE .NET 4.2 Core provides a
hard real-time operating system kernel with robust file system, extensive networking and
communications technologies, rich multimedia capabilities, as well as a powerful application
development platform. The new Windows CE .NET 4.2 Core license is ideal for low-cost devices,
such as gateways, entry-level voice over IP (VoIP) phones, industrial automation equipment, and
consumer electronic devices such as CD players, digital cameras, and networked DVD players.

Below is a list of frequently asked questions that may assist you in making a decision about
which runtime license is most appropriate for your design. For further pricing and licensing,
please contact your local Microsoft Embedded Distributor. A table representing a comprehensive
list of the catalog features associated with each runtime license option follows the frequently
asked questions. A check () in the box indicates that the corresponding catalog item is
included in the particular runtime license.




Frequently Asked Questions:

How does this change pricing for previous versions of Windows CE?
This does not affect pricing for previous versions of Windows CE. There is no direct equivalent of
the Windows CE .NET 4.2 Core feature set to any previous version of Windows CE because it
incorporates some of the new functionality in version 4.2, such as the Telephony User Interface
and the Microsoft .NET Compact Framework. For detailed information on the runtime pricing
across the various versions of Windows CE, contact your local Microsoft Embedded Distributor.

What kind of devices can be built using the new Core functionality?
The Core runtime license is targeted to the low-end device market—such as gateways, wireless
access points, and various types of VoIP solutions that require base level functionality and may
not require the full richness of the entire Windows CE .NET 4.2 feature set. The Core runtime
license was created so these types of devices can utilize the power of Windows CE .NET 4.2
capabilities that are best suited to their requirements while leveraging a cost-effective pricing
model. If companies choose to create a full-featured device, they have the option of
implementing their own enhancements on top of the Core feature set or licensing additional
Windows CE .NET 4.2 functionality.
Why are you changing the cost structure now?
After talking with partners and device manufacturers, and looking at Industry Trends, we have
seen a new range of low-cost, reduced- and fixed-function devices, such as gateways, VoIP
devices, wireless access points, and others. We wanted to provide partners with a more flexible
approach for licensing Windows CE .NET for these devices and help them standardize on a single
platform across their product line from low end to high end. This helps device manufacturers
minimize development efforts because companies can then leverage their Windows Embedded
expertise across a wide range of device designs.

How do these new runtime licenses enhance the intellectual property of other
companies?
The new Core offering will enhance the intellectual property of other companies by enabling them
to license a low-cost runtime and augment their design with the additional functionality of their
choice or creation. By enabling companies to use a single, scalable operating system and
development platform across their product line, the Core offering will speed innovation.
Additionally, by providing an option that combines the desired technology and price, companies
can enjoy the benefits of preserving intellectual property rights, guaranteed product updates,
and timely, professional support that is not available from open-source software. Companies also
have the option of licensing the Windows CE .NET 4.2 Professional or Professional Plus runtime
licenses to provide additional out-of-the-box functionality, or they may create their own value-
add technologies on top of the Windows CE .NET operating system.

There is a perception that Linux is free, so why would someone choose to pay $3 for an
operating system when building a device?
There certainly is a perception that Linux is free, but that can be misleading. Software licensing
costs often are only a small part of the overall cost of developing and maintaining a total solution.
We believe that when the full range of costs are fairly considered, Windows Embedded operating
systems, and especially the new, low-cost Windows CE .NET 4.2 Core offering, compare very
favorably with embedded Linux in terms of the total cost of development. The Windows
Embedded operating systems offer:
     Very low-price development tools for Windows CE .NET ($995 per developer). Linux
        vendors typically charge significant costs for development tools from $2,500-$10,000 per
        developer. This may equate to between 3 and 10 times that of a Windows CE offering.
     Additional benefits that a commercial operating system provides beyond what can be
        offered by open source. In the low-end space, Windows CE .NET 4.2 provides:
            o Best of class features and powerful development tools.
            o Fully tested, quality product updates.
            o A professional and predictable support model.

The Windows CE .NET product catalog contains only the optional features of the operating
system. For reference purposes, the names in the Catalog column of the table below map
directly to the catalog, so those sysgen variables that appear several times in the catalog do the
same here. Indentations in the table indicate the deep tree structure of the product catalog. For
a complete description of each feature that appears in the product catalog, please see Catalog
Features in the online product documentation.
Note: An asterisk (*) by several features indicates that we feel these features require additional

Additional information on the below features as indicated in the table with an asterisk (*).


Help
Help is not included in the Core runtime because it requires a browser. The Windows CE .NET
4.2 help engine is HTML-based, and our help documentation comes in the form of HTM files.
However, this help documentation is available for use, but it does require that customers create
their own viewing software.


Basic Multimedia
The Core runtime includes support for local playback and Portable DRM. Portable DRM allows a
connected device to have content copied to it over ActiveSync. An example of this would be a
WMA Player used to listen to audio files.
