Microsoft .NET Micro Framework

The Microsoft .NET Micro Framework brings a full-featured managed code environment to smaller, less expensive, and more resource-constrained devices than could previously be served by such cutting-edge technology. Using only a few hundred kilobytes of RAM and an inexpensive processor, the Microsoft .NET Micro Framework platform gives you the means to build applications by using the same unsurpassed development tools and advanced languages that you use to build desktop applications. Currently, this framework supplies the software platform for all Smart Watches for MSN® Direct. There are also plans to include it in Windows Vista™ SideShow displays and in an upcoming version of Microsoft TV Foundation Edition.

The .NET Micro Framework grew out of the Smart Personal Objects Technology (SPOT) initiative, which Microsoft first publicly announced more than three years ago when it introduced the MSN Direct Smart Watch. Developing SPOT devices required support for rich graphical applications on very inexpensive and power-efficient hardware. However, it did not require all of the features that were available in Windows CE. As a result, Microsoft created the .NET Micro Framework.
