“Microsoft “Menlo” is a research project which seems to be focused on replacing Windows CE (known officially these days as Windows Embedded Compact) Compact Edition (CE) with Windows NT inside of mobile devices, according to my sources. “Experiment 19&Prime is a graphics platform researchers are building to complement Menlo, my sources have told me,” reports MJFoley. “The lead for Menlo is Galen Hunt, Microsoft researcher who spearheaded Microsoft’s Singularity research project, as he acknowledges on his bio page on Microsoft Research Web site. (Singularity is a microkernel-based operating system developed by Microsoft Research, and supposedly the starting point for Microsoft’s Midori effort.) Researcher Ruben Olinsky also is on Menlo team, focusing specifically on “Experiment 19,” as is/was Kerry Hammil, a (former) Microsoft Researcher who has worked on 2D/3D graphics programming interfaces for Windows.” Here’s another Menlo reference, courtesy of the bio page from another Microsoft Researcher, A.J. Brush, regarding a paper that will be published in September 2010: “User Experiences with Activity-Based Navigation on Mobile Devices A.J.
