OK, dumb question.
Microsoft has a 120-day trial variant of a CE SDK. (Woo.)
I have a copy of a cross-compiler (xming32). This
cross-compiler allows code to be developed on a Linux box
and then compiled down to an Intel PE86/Windows-capable
.EXE file that can run on WinE. Granted, there are some
limitations (I doubt I can do DirectX on this thing, for
example -- yet).
Which one's more useful?
(No, it won't quite compiler Jeff's X.CPP. But I digress.)
Windows Vista. Because it's time to refresh your hardware. Trust us.
