The relationship between Portable.NET and Mono is answered in the FAQ (http://www.southern-storm.com.au/pnet_faq.html). Portable.NET predates Mono by several months - we were here first.

This question is answered in the Portable.NET FAQ, which can be found here (http://www.southern-storm.com.au/pnet_faq.html). It's not as easy as it looks.

Doing it "right" ?
Have you thought about adding C# to the languages that GCC supports and adding the runtime byte code as a valid output format? Essentially you would build a cross-compiler...

I'm excited to see someone working on this. The .Net framework is very cool, but can only be really cool if it is across platforms. Good luck!

1. Because we need to keep Microsoft honest on this stuff. We can't let them turn it into another "run the binary and trust us" system. The security issues are too great. Only the open source model can produce a truly secure system.

2. I like messing with parsers and runtimes and stuff. It's fun! :)

Well, .NET should be supported. World domination doesn't happen by rebuilding things, but by taking them over. This is a way for Opensource to take over .NET!!
