I never downloaded the SDKs, they came on the CD with the Dev Kit.

If you compile an app for CE2.0 it will most likely work in a CE3 device if they use the same CPU. However the CE2 app will have the old style toolbar on the upper side of the screen instead of at the bottom.

The Ce toolkit was replaced with the Embedded Visual Tools located here:
This is a 300Mb download however, so you may want to pay the 10 S&H to get them to send you a CD.
The CD also includes the SDK for PocketPC, HandheldPC, and CE 2.0.
The SDKs are plug ins to either the Embedded toolkit or the Visual Dev Tools.
You can develop for any platform but you can not run (or install) the emultor unless you are on Windows2000. I found the emultor useless anyway, I use wireless ethernet on my device and my notebook and find it sufficient and more accurate. The emultor is supposed to be a faster way to test and debug apps, I find the speed is not an equal tradoff for its 'different' behavior.
