  1. While Windows 7 is long gone many of the principles are still relevant, perhaps even more so now that .net has been made open source on github.

  2. There was not as much on theory to satisfy some of my colleges but I found it a very useful tool. Would like to get more sample code.

  3. Si inicias un proyecto basado en Windows Embedded este es muy buen material.
    Tiene muchos buenos tips que pueden hacer mas robusta su solucion
