pocket pc and compact framework

has any one ran .net apps on the new pocket pc 2002 ?

I am interested in building some apps for 2002 and am wondering how it compares to java ?

Yes, I have written a 24/7 application.  It was a gamble at first, but we decided upon this platform early in 2002.  At the time MS had anticipated a mid 2002 release, which was pushed later.

Even though it has released, it is not perfect.  I don't demand every feature under the sun, but some smaller items have had to be worked around in development.

Still we were able to release a stable product with few quirks.  Just keep in mind your developer (you?) will spend considerable more time in development than you would on the win32 side of the house with this .NET platform.
