Has anyone used this and if so had any joy with it?

It seems like a somewhat half-arsed amateur attempt to me. Maybe because it is open-source MS don't see any profitability in it.

I bought a Netduino Plus 2 (32bit ARM Cortex) which is a little prototyping board which hardware wise is a complete beast in comparison to its competitor - the Arduino which is a weedy 8 bit thing. 168Mhz vs. 16Mhz with a lot more flash and RAM memory.

Unfortunately though, this thing is super slow, principally because it interprets the CIL rather than Jitting it. There is a jitter in the framework source but apparently it doesn't compile and they never bothered to fix it. Also, jitting isn't ideal on flash memory as you can't replace the CIL with native instructions. This would require RAM.

Add in the fact the the framework will likely consume most of your flash memory, interrupt latency of up to 20ms discounting any realtime operation (who'd want that in an embedded device) and appalling documentation on MSDN and you end up with one big turkey. To get the I2C bus working on it, you have to twiddle some private members using reflection every time you want to read/write data.

So, I've given up and bought an Arduino for £10 which is likely to be quicker and £40 less expensive, and hopefully won't give me a four day headache like its counterpart.

*moan over*

Rob Philpott.
