|   | + 21969 [dblack candl] I have briefly tried to understand .NET, and don't, so I may be wrong.
|   | | + 21971 [nat.pryce b1] The CLR component of .NET is no more than a common virtual machine for

|   | |   | 22205 [avdi avdi.or] If it will execute any program that will execute on Matz's interpreter,

|   | + 21973 [rich infoeth] Yes...It will be part of a service pack
|   | | 21974 [bobhicks nos] From the looks of things though that will not be until early next year.
|   | | + 21976 [rich infoeth] I agree... .NET is not the way to go.
|   | | + 21987 [benoit.cerri] Good point what we want now is an official way to compile ruby for windows
|   | | | + 22004 [aleksei.guze] Why not use ANSI C and free Microsoft Platform SDK?
|   | | | | 22039 [benoit.cerri] Problem is not compilation but runtime compatibility, you need to be able to

|   | | + 22152 [schneiker ju] it
|   | + 21975 [bobhicks nos] No...XP is coming out this month and .NET is still in heavy beta (beta 2).

| | 21892 [alwagner uar] You talk like a windows only user, more concerned with stability
| | + 21895 [gnhurst hurs] In fact, I only use Ruby on Linux. I consider it almost unusable on windows.
| | + 21914 [ptkwt shell1] Not really.  I don't think he's saying that we just dump Windows, but that

|   21945 [aleksei.guze] # -----Original Message-----
|   21947 [rich infoeth] OK...this makes the point.  I downloaded the W2K .dll and it does not work against the MinGW distribution (probably not the Cygwin version either).
|   21978 [aleksei.guze] Mswin. I think there is no need to build another Posix layer on Windows,
