I am curious as to how memory and storage devices are managed under CE? How do the ROM, RAM, "Object Store" and external storage work together?

The "Object Store" has been increased from 16Mb to 256Mb, what does this mean to us?

Is the "Object Store" the total memory that can be used to store executable programs? (as opposed to total addressable memory).

Can external memory only be used to store data and copies of executable files or can you run executables from a storage card?

Would you for instance have a storage device containing mamece and all the rom files for it or would you install mamece and just use the storage device for the rom files?

Hi,
I recommend that you read my article on Inside Windows CE on my website. The increase in size of the Object Store allows you to use more ram on a 32 MB machine for storage than 16 MB. For example a Casio E-115 can use 24 MB for storage and 8 mb for program execution.
