Mike Hall has an interesting post on MSDN about the codenames for Windows CE and how they came about. Here’s the key info…

at Windows CE 4.0 the o/s team and tools teams merged together to form a new, combined team - the codenames for the operating system and tools also changed at this time from trees/tools to <drumroll>Whiskeys</drumroll>

But the codename for CE 6.0 is Yamazaki! You’ve got 200 proper Scottish whiskies to choose from and you go Japanese. Why not Lagavulin or Caol Ila. You heathen. :)
