that much different than compiling something dependant on MFC on a
Changing the behaviour of 3rd party developers is probably a lost cause....
(.NET code is actually about as portable as Java, except that
Microsoft only supplies an environment for Windows and developers
ignore it and use OS specific functionality (such as Windows-only
DLLs). Its quite possible for a pure .NET 2.0 application to run fine
