CodePlex open-source developer Stefanov succeeded last year in compiling versions of the .NET Compact Framework 1.0 that are compatible with Windows CE 2.0, 2.01, and 2.11 devices, thereby breathing new life into these older Windows CE devices by allowing them to run many newer applications.

Now, Stefanov is considering working on a port of .NET CF 2.0 to Windows CE 2.xx and 3.0, opening the possibility of running many current Windows Mobile applications on legacy Windows CE devices.

Before embarking on this project, however, Stefanov is gauging the level of interest in such a project by asking Windows CE device users to vote in a poll on the CodePlex site. Members here who would like to bring .NET CF 2.0 to Windows CE 2.xx and Windows CE 3.0 devices are strongly encouraged to vote in the poll at the CodePlex page linked below.

Come on everybody, vote! It would be great to get .NET CF 2.0 on Windows CE 3.0

I've voted for this but to be honest I don't know what it would do for my old J720. What kind of apps would it let me run and would it do so without 'breaking' my HPC2000 apps (like RedGear appears to do in a lot of cases - according to their website)
