EVC4 is still available from M$, I think I'll give that a shot since I 
have a PPC 2003se and Mobile 6 device.  I use to code in EVC3 and then  
port to EVC4 for PPC 2003se/Mobile 5 support.  M$ broke that with Mobile 
6 though.  I couldn't keep up with M$ changes so I went back into the 

I think we should think about different versions for different 
platforms. PPC 2002 (has 3-4 processor types), PPC 2003/2003se and 
Mobile 5/6.  We should keep as much of the code the same as possible though.

I am checking into a student version I think maybe my son can buy it 
with his ID card.
