    It's almost identical to VC++ for 'normal' Windows. It has ATL and MFC, and you can use almost all the Win32 API. It has an emulator to debug your programs on your PC, and remote debugging facilities for the device. In short, it's great.

    The major difference between Windows CE and 'normal' Windows is that CE is Unicode-only; of course, if you've been writing _T everywhere this shouldn't present a problem! Screen design is strange, because your screen is now very small indeed, and there's generally no DirectX. The controls are also different. That's about it, though.
