As the former Aonix engineer who got this working, I can say that with WinCE
2.0, a basic capability (for x86) was trivial. One simply created a winmain
style application, and linked with the Windows/CE SDK linker, using the
At the time the only x86 implementation of CE available was the simulator
provided with the SDK, so the result was more academic than anything else. I
don't know what the situation is today.
Aside from that, though, there remained a number of issues to make it usable.
