    I've heard from many people that the .net 2.0 is "Very bad". I seem to recall seeing "it stinks somewhere along the line as well. lol

    I have not allowed any applications to install it on my WX as per the advice I've gotten here in these forums. However, I'm a tad curious. What's so bad about it? What types of differences would you notice using it?

    I read that it slows things down. Is that referring to speed of connection or overall use of the phone? I only wonder because I'd love to install SiriuCE to listen to Sirius. My Sirius Stiletto doesn't get a good signal in my office.

    So who has any knowledge/opinions? :-)

    The problem with .NET CF 2.0 is that it is big. It hogs up the memory both storage-wise and RAM.

    Programs run OK on it. I had it installed at one point and did not notice a dramatic difference in speed.

    If you want to try it, go for it. You can always uninstall it if it doesn't work out.

    Just be sure to back up before you go doing anything major so you can easily restore if something goes bad... ;-)

    Built in isn't as bad, though. We have built in 1.0 now and that is fine. My biggest issue with 2.0 is that it was in addition to what was already in the ROM which just annoys me... LOL

    Don't bother with SiriuCE. It hasn't worked in a long time. Use SiriusWM5 instead.

    I assume you are referring to .Net 2.0.

    SiriusWM5 is very tiny at 60k and doesn't require .Net. It works great for me.

    Speaking as a programmer, there's no way I'm going back to writing .Net 1.x code. It'd be like using a flintlock rifle instead of a M-16.

    Yeah, I wouldn't mind having the extra space, but i've learned to make do.

    The main problem with it (IMO) is the speed of the programs. They take forever to load, most apps aren't programmed well and are unstable, and as mentioned it takes up a ton of memory. CF2.0 in itself isn't really "bad," but most apps are. I never found it to be a problem when not running any of the 2.0 apps..

    Thanks for all the advice here - almost downloaded .Net 2.0 - but am now using Sirius WM5 on my 700wx and loving it!
