MS SQL Server 2000 Windows CE 2.0

Has anyone used this?

I'm very interested in the Merge Replication feature:

"Common scenarios for merge replication include: read-only replication; data capture and upload; and replication, updating and synchronization. Most applications use a combination of these scenarios. For example, a sales support application might use read-only replication to download a price list to a device while relying on data capture and upload to capture new orders on the device and then upload them to a server. "

Any thoughts on RDA vs. Merge Replication?

For those that have been battle-tested, any gotchas?

To add:

What's interesting to me is that it seems like all I have to do is define the tables/schema on the desktop (msde) and write some configuration files which describe what data is gong to go the PDA and which data is going to come back.

All that fun stuff allows me to just concentrate on the forms that I would have to write for the PDA (to manipulate the data I'm concerned with).

Forms and configuration files!  That would be great.
