I used to be able to solve Rubik's Cube in three minutes - after a kid showed me how. (Those young whippersnappers know everything.)

Back to the topic at hand. We really need votes to get .NET CF 2.0 for CE 2.xx/3.0 - it'll bring so many new uses to these older devices. Please, people, cast your vote on the page linked above.

Sorry I'm new to this, but I've been longing for my Jornada 820 to have a much better web browser. Does this mean I can use Maximus Web Browser on my jornada 820 if I have .NET Compact Framework like mentioned earlier? Or is there any way that the .NET Compact Framework can give me a better web browser?

Thanks!!

Can't say for sure, but it's a possibility.

Rich, it doesn't hurt to dream, as long as one doesn't drool on the pillow.

More likely than not, any .NET-based web browser will simply be using the same rendering DLL/resources that Pocket IE uses on the device.

Yes, most .Net based browsers use built-in IE libraries. I've seen three of them, all they do that.

So in other words I'm stuck with the browser my jornada 820 already has even if I install .NET?

Yep, unless it comes with its own HTML rendering library

Confirmed that it works if installed to a Storage Card as well, though then you have to put all the .NET CF programs in the same folder with the runtime files. (Used one of my ePods [CE 2.12 MIPS] to confirm this.)

Only one more vote since November for .NET CF 2.0 support for CE 2.xx/3.0? Geez, folks, this should be a no-brainer! What have we got to lose?

Perhaps some proactive steps are required to get the word out there a bit here. After all, to the average user, the .net framework is fairly meaningless, what's the justification.

What we need as well as a programming list is some bits on how to program for using .net on the H/PC; how to setup the IDE, perform builds and to ensure that the screen resolution differences play nicely, then we need to get users to install that and actually use it for more than complicated hacks. If the new UMPC generation know that they can build natively in .net and have access to Visual Basic, that may help.

Perhaps the CE2.x runtimes are something that we can get up on H/PC:Update if the developer agrees. That will at least expose it to a wider audience?

I can't imagine Stefanov having a problem with that. I'll ask him later.

It's a step in the right direction if nothing else, but I think that more of the above drives are needed to increase momentum. That and some killer apps.
