John Leier from Digi International has written an article for ECNMag.com that discusses the use of .NET Micro Framework in embedded systems development - here's a snippet.

Microsoft's .NET Micro Framework, in combination with the C# language and Microsoft's Visual Studio tools, gives engineers and programmers more options for their embedded-system designs. A product team can reduce its design time because engineers no longer implement a boot-loader, drivers, or other low-level code. The .NET Micro Framework lets engineers who are new to embedded-system design jump right into coding without the need for special tools and a detailed understanding of processor and operating-system architectures.
