A few folk were thinking this was going to take out arduino boards, but I think it's more attacking Buglabs or nerdkits.

Blah..blah..blah I know people get all up in arms that it's Microsoft and the .NET compact framekwork, but really is it that big of a problem? Mixing and matching hardware to create a prototype device and then write code for it? Hells yeah!

This is going down for a christmas present.

Any thoughts on this folks? Does anything leap to mind for immediate commissioning?

I just noticed that you can now program with VB.

I have a couple of projects that I'm interested in doing but I'm having trouble figuring out which
hardware to get.
