Nope, did not know that. Thanks. I did know that their DREs and scanners do not use WinCE.

David, I'm surprised you didn't at least know about Sequoia.

Quoting:

"2.1.2 HAAT

The Hybrid Activator, Accumulator & Transmitter (HAAT) is a portable,
shoe-box sized device, used primarily to activate Voter Cards used by
the Edge DRE.1 The HAAT-100 model, not used in California, may also
consolidate votes cast on Edges or Insights after an election, and
transmit the unofficial tally of a precinct over a cellular network 2
Although the hardware differs between the two versions of the HAAT,
the source code appears to be nearly identical. The source code is
written primarily in C#, runs on a standard 486 processor, and is
built on top of Windows CE 5.0."
