is MicroSoft.Net is plate form Independent

    Question

  • hello

    how are you?

    i have the views

    1). .NET Framework from Microsoft can only be used in Windows.
    If you want to used .NET Framework in Linux, then
    you must go to Mono Project.

    2). It was designed to be platform independent, but Microsoft only provides a runtime for Windows. Look at Mono or Portable.NET for for alternative platforms.

    and one more question

    what is mono or protable.Net?

  • Also note that, while you are correct that Microsoft only provides an implementation of .NET for Windows, Microsoft has provided standards and specifications that make projects like mono possible.
