In case you missed it, Mike Gunderloy has a great piece at on how Microsoft’s new Ultra-Mobile PC (a.k.a Origami) opens a whole new set of opportunities for micro-ISV developers:

And because the early market will be small (by definition, it’s a new market, so it starts with a single sale), it won’t be dominated at first by major players. There’s a lot of room here for small developers to stake out territory. I expect to see games, personal productivity applications, communications applications, and media applications specifically targeted at the UMPC from relatively small vendors in the first wave. Some of these, no doubt, will be written in VB. Perhaps some of them will even be written by you.

Read the entire piece. And pin Gunderloy on your radar screen: he’s got a lot of useful things to say for micro-ISVs.
