The first feature that I like most is not really a feature of the system but rather of Platform Builder, the BSP templates. This really is a neat feature enabling BSP developers to jumpstart a new BSP. The second feature that I like is the ability of an OEM of either an ARM or x86 architecture based devices to support 3 GB of RAM and the kernel detects it “automatically”. At last you can support multicore based devices, even though I’d still prefer to have this support available to the developer to control, but that will not happen.
Compact 7 includes Windows Embedded Silverlight Tools which you can use to convert the XAML codes created in Expression Blend 3, and turn them into a C++ native code subproject.I am new to the Silverlight and XAML stuff. This tool make it easier to use Silverlight.Even without the animation and fancy transition, a static Silverlight front end provides a new look and feel.
