Will we see a .net interface for Unix?

By shaun.ryan ·
Microsoft have taken a greater step towards open systems architecture with the CLR layer at the bottom of .net. Is feasible that we shall see Unix .net support that will run Microsoft Intermediate Language? Is this attractive for Microsoft? Is this attractive for Unix? (Commercially/Techinically).

Yes you will although not right away. The open source community has announced that they are starting a .net project for linux. This is not a trivial undertaking and will probably take awhile. The CLR holds the potential to greatly simplify compiler development and foster interoperability between code written in different languages. Like any new technology, it will undoubtedly bring along it's own set of challenges to the table.

Do you mean like Mono? To my knowledge, this is the closest thing to .NET support that the Open Source community has been working on:
