Are we using English for this question, or some other language? If you're referring to what the Dreamcast is for, it was used to "play video games." Sometimes those were online.

I believe there was something on the unit (or manual) that said compatible with Windows CE. It's been years since I've seen my dreamcast.

It ran a modified version of Windows CE as its OS if that is what the OP is asking about.

Actually, I think it could run Windows CE, if nessecary. It wasn't built into the Dreamcast, it had to be built into the software if you wanted to use it. Only a handful of PC ports actually did.
