        Windows SideShow is a feature of Windows Vista that enables users to access information from their PCs on auxiliary displays. The Microsoft .NET Micro Framework 2.0 SP1 is the efficient runtime that powers today’s most popular SideShow-compatible devices.

        The Windows SideShow Device SDK enables developers to build SideShow-compatible devices using the .NET Micro Framework 2.0 SP1. It includes sample code; portrait and landscape SideShow UI for QVGA displays (320x240); USB and Bluetooth connectivity; and the SideShow device simulator, which allows developers to test their firmware without physical hardware.
