Windows 7 for mobile ready and still no freedom to develop software on it

Windows 7 for mobile (aka Mango) has now reached the "RTM" phase, which means it's ready to ship on smartphones. As reported earlier the Microsoft OS for mobile has very strict closed conditions and terms if you want to develop on its platform. Fortunately it seems that MSFT's strategy on smartphones does not make it as prevalent as others (iOS being another issue) but it' s still problematic not to have full access to the OS and be free to develop in the language ones wishes to.
