Hello Bryan,

Python on windows CE works well... but not you have *two* problems.

I would call the python port 'experimental'. The core language works 
very well - but the user interface is ropey. This means there is *no* 
production code (that I'm aware of anyway) using python for CE and 
writing your own stuff is 'interesting'. It's great for hacking though.
