.NET (dotGNU too) "Microsoft is turning the source code for its embedded .Net Micro Framework over to the community and slowly withdrawing from that business, company officials are confirming. On the rumored list of teams most heavily impacted by second wave of Microsoft layoffs announced on May 5 was the .Net Micro Framework team - as well as the related MSN Direct unit. Indeed, both groups were affected, a Microsoft spokesperson confirmed on May 6."

Member since:

could be could but .Net micro framework is still worse than JavaME in term of language crippleness.
they both are interpreted, tough I like the C# syntax better than Java, I think .Net micro framework simply can't compete with plain C in the embedded market, because of the memory constrain, Devs actually have more control over memory.

And in term of platform dev like psp or ds, I think that lua got more momentum in the homebrew scene.
