Does anyone know why Monitor.TryEnter is not included in NETMF?

It feels like this is an important method when handling with threadsafe applications…

@ Honken - I doubt anyone other than Microsoft can give you a definitive answer. But generally the goal is to make .NETMF as small and functional as possible. Since small is a goal, things like TryEnter would be cut, on small devices like this I would personally expect only the most primitive concurrency control, critical section being the most important.

If you desperately need TryEnter then you can probably implement a simplified version with no time-out quite easily.
