mostly MSVC2008 SP1, MSVC2010 on a different machine.

Note that Windows CE developers are tied to VS 2005 / VS 2008 unless 
they install MSVC2010 for desktop development on the same machine, which 
can screw up everything if installing things not in the right order.

After the service pack I find VS 2010 okayish though slower still than 
the old versions.

Due to its wide usage I'd like to see VS 2008 as tier1 platform.
Though its not a high priority issue for me as testing 2010 is "close 
enough" for now.
