What the?! O.o

Ok... even if they would indeed be doing that, FPC has all needed things 
in place basically. With WinCE we have the necessary ARM backend support 
and the normal Win32 API might work without much changes if Microsoft 
keeps the APIs compatible (which they should do if they want ANY popular 
software running at least by recompiling).

We will see how that evolves.
