"In this article, Microsoft unveils its new Merlin software. Wait a minute, Sun also unveiled its Merlin software recently. This could be the beginning of a trademark and branding battle."
Merlin is just the code name for the new WinCE. I don't know what Sun's "Merlin" software is. Either way, Merlin was already used before. Merlin was the code name for OS/2 Warp v4.
