The SDK is freely downloadable at.NET Micro Framework SDK - there are pointers to the latest versions on the home page of this site (netmf.com). You can use either the full or the Express version (Visual C# Express) to try the samples and create your own applications. The SDK includes an emulator so that you don't need hardware to try the tools out.
Adapt it to specific hardware
If you need to adapt the platform to specific hardware - either a processor that is not currently supported or for additional peripherals - the .NET Micro Framework Porting Kit is also freely available. Pointers to the latest versions can be found on the home page of this site (netmf.com). The Porting Kit also contains all the source code so that you can modify or expand the platform however you would like.
