Thanks for the link.
I'm thinking lead ballons for Christmas, Vesuvius.
There are some good opportunities for developers with the new platform, but I think Enterprise developers who need to store alot of data locally on the device are out of luck. I think it's a major mistake on Microsoft's part if there is no great way to effectively store large amounts of data to the device, access data locally and sync data with other databases. A huge catalog of products stored locally on an SD card and sync'd once in a while with a server would be a great example of app functionality that seems to be missing. I've asked the question here and two more times on twitter. So far no response. Lead Balloon?
I still hold the opinion that it's only Marketplace apps that are limited to Silverlight and Compact XNA, Enterprises will still get the native API, anything else would just be stupidity.
