For reasons of curiousity and bloodymindedness I have decided to buy a Windows Mobile netbook, like this one:

alt text

Theoretically it should support the .NET Compact framework:

Can anyone advise whether Windows CE 5 on this or similar netbooks could run the .NET Compact Framework 2.0 and/or whether I should wait for a newer version of Windows Mobile to be available on small netbooks?

Please don't tell me that I should get a bigger/real Windows netbook or a Linux netbook. I already have a 10" Windows 7 netbook and a 7" Debian netbook. I just buy cheap netbooks as a hobby.

But if you know of other cheap ~100 Euro netbooks running interesting operating systems, please point me to a store. Thank you.

Update: a better CE netbook:

QBook 7" Portable

I found an answer.

According to the Microsoft Windows CE Web site Windows CE 5.0 supports the .NET Compact Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2:

The .NET Compact Framework Windows CE 5.0 adds the .NET Compact Framework Service Pack 2 functionality.

Windows CE 6.0 also supports .NET Compact out of the box as per the Windows CE 6.0 Web site:

Write native or managed code by choosing your preferred Microsoft development technology -- Win32, MFC, or the .NET Compact Framework (C#, VB).
