    One quick note...  Visual Basic Express is now supported by the .NET Micro Framework 4.2 beta. 

    We appreciate all the excellent testing from the Visual Basic community so far, and are excited to welcome them into the Netduino and .NET Micro Framework communities.

    I'm more foolish then brave I suppose, but I've played with it a little already and I must say as old-school VB coder I am pleased Cool

    Remote firmware update is the thing I want, looking forward to that.  GHI has it's own model, but it would be great to get something standard.

    Hi PerfectPhase,

    Remote firmware update could be possible, depending on the definition of Remote. When using an xbee shield for example, it's quite possible to upgrade the firmware over a radio signal. Perhaps there are possibilities to do so over ethernet as well, but that would require a modification of the current firmware I think. Perhaps you could post that question with a bit more background information ont he Netduino Forums?

    Ps. nice Doctor Who-reference in your tagline. Big DrWho-fan here!

     .NET Micro Framework is great.  Hey Microsoft, why don't you give away some hardware on Channel9?  I'd love to play with more tech but I'm poor these days. 

    Every time there's a .NET Micro Framework announcement I think there should be some kind of hardware giveaway to spur interest (and supply poor guys like me with hardware).

    Netduino is cool, but why did MS abandon the .Net Gadgeteer project from MS Research? It was cool.
