Wince on beagleboard-xm

Hi guys,
I'm a newbie in beagleboard world.
I got my beagleboard-xm and I've done some simple tests with the
angstrom distribution, but for the application I'm developing I need
to install a more user friendly OS, WinCE would be the best.
I've tried to find a demo image for my BeagleBoard-Xm, but it seems
that this OS is available only for the previous model of BeagleBoard
and not for the XM type, that has the dm3730 processor.
Maybe you know already a way not to complicated to install wince on my
BB-XM, could you suggest me where to download the image and the steps
to follow to reach my goal please?

Thanks in advance.

WinCE being more user friendly? you are kidding right?

Anyway, download the MPC Data BSP of windows compact 7

But a better suggestion is to test ubuntu netbook efl, or xfce, or ldxe or kde netbook, or anything really

Yeah WinCe more friendly is a joke...

My problem is that I've to interface 2 devices that run with the .net
framework.

So my idea is to try installing WinCE and the .NET compact framework.
Do you think there are other solutions?

I've already seen the MPC data site but I've not found a BSP for the
BeagleBoard XM, could you post the link to the download page pls?

Thanks

why does interfacing these devices require running ce? what devices are
those?

Yes of course, the link is:

www.google.com

In there you can find mostly anything you search for

Ok, the alternate link is:

http://support.mpcdata.com/ti/ (or what is shown in the first results page if you google “mpc data windows compact 7 bsp”)

Mono on linux?

The devices are:
1 camera with usb2.0 interface
1 thermal camera with usb2.0 interface

On their manual I've read about the required .net framework

if they implement a known/standard USB class, they should not
require .net at all. If they have some windows .net specific
drivers for the PC, I doubt these run as-is on a BB, even
if it runs CE....
