Java has always been good at getting its code down to the smallest of devices. .NET made attempts at entering this space a little while back when SPOT came out that allowed .NET developers to write code for some small devices such as some Microsoft watches. SPOT has gone away it seems but the work applied there has brought forth the new and upcoming .NET Micro Framework. This is a development environment that will allow for .NET development on a small device. The size of the framework will only be a few hundred kilobytes and this will allow for all kinds of applications. This will be fun to play with once I get my hands upon it.

Wow - I thought this was some kind of joke at first until I went to read the announcement at Microsoft.com - seems pretty neat, especially since I'm such a big fan of the .NET Compact Framework!

Can't wait to see "Hello World" on my Smart Watch ;)
