Jon Box's .NET Blog - Who Says Microsoft Does Not Listen?

On the Mobility front, I noticed where Redmond decided to add .NETCF 2.0 and SQL Mobile support to Widwos CE 4.2

On the Mobility front, I noticed where Redmond decided to add .NETCF 2.0 and SQL Mobile support to Widwos CE 4.2.  This was is in response to customer feedback and specifically one of the MVP mobility discussion lists where we are allowed to interact directly with Microsoft Mobility team members.  I saw the process in action where some Windows Mobile guys explained why they took the position to not support this, listened to the reasoning from some wise MVP's, went back to their teams, and came back with a change in direction.

Here are some resulting blogs:
Why did we drop support for WinCE 4.2 in V2, and then bring it back for V2 SP1?
NET Compact Framework 2.0 and SQL Server 2005 Mobile Edition Support for Windows CE 4.2
