A skunkworks project in 2008/2009 to re-imagine the OS platform for Windows Phone. The prototype proved that Windows NT and the CLR could deliver better performance than Windows CE and the .NET Compact Framework on identical hardware. Within months of the completion of Experiment 19, Microsoft launched efforts to build what would become Windows Phone 8 and Windows RT for ARM tablets.

That's extremely interesting. It's always nice to have some insight into the development of current software. Thanks.

Pretty cool to know how it all started. Windows RT is still pretty useless though, unless you're a Metro fan.
