     Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Windows CE Edition (SQL Server CE) is the
 compact database for rapidly developing applications that extend enterprise
 data management capabilities to devices. SQL Server CE has the familiarity of
 SQL Server, with tools, APIs and SQL grammar that minimize development time.
 In addition, the SQL Server CE engine exposes an essential set of relational
 database features -- including an optimizing query processor, support for
 transactions and assorted data types -- while maintaining a compact footprint
 that preserves precious system resources. Remote data access and merge
 replication, which work over HTTP and support encryption, ensure that data
 from enterprise SQL Server databases is reliably delivered and that this data
 can be manipulated offline and synchronized later to the server. This
 functionality makes SQL Server CE ideal for mobile and wireless scenarios.

 software, services and Internet technologies for personal and business
