  • Hi Prasanna B,

    The project Mono on  http://www.mono-project.com/Main_Page has created a .NET Framework for Linux.  .NET you can say is partially platform independent but not fully like Java as still Microsoft is innovating its technology to target different platforms. .NET applications need .NET framework installed on the target machine. There are frameworks for older versions of Windows but they are not fully operable and have some vulnerabilities i.e. not as secure and reliable and .NET framework 4.0. But the drawback here is still there that on Windows 98 you cannot have .NET Framework 4.0 i.e. new versions are not compatible to older version of Windows.  Project Mono has created the framework for Linux but still Solaris, Unix, etc are pending and might be soon we would be able to see our applications running on them due to Microsoft's daily new innovations.

    Talking about ASP.NET say the developer has developed the site on .NET Framework 4.0 and he tries to deploy it on a Unix Server, you need definitely a .NET Framework compatible to Unix, but as per what my knowledge goes its not possible to deploy .NET ASP Application to Unix Servers, you specifically need latest Windows OS with targetted .NET Framework versions.  However, once the site is hosted on the Windows targetted Framework Server, any OS based browser can browse the .aspx pages as the processing takes place at the server end and not at the end user's end.

    Hope your doubts are clear friend..

  • What do you mean by "platform independent" If you are asking about OS's other than Windows, the answer is that the Mono Project ported .NET to Linux, otherwise, Windows only.

    If you're asking about different versions of Windows, newer frameworks are not supported on old, no longer supported Windows versions. For the best information on what Windows versions are supported by a given .NET Framework, see that version's Download Deatils page and read System Requirements.

  • It depends on what do you mean by "platform independent": if you're making a comparison with Java, Microsoft .NET is platform independent, because anyone can download the standardized specification of the Common Language Infrastructure and write a new runtime (or a new .NET-compliant programming language) for an operating system different than Windows (think about Mono Project for Linux).

    If you're talking about different Windows versions where you can install the Microsoft .NET Framework, newer releases cannot be installed on older versions of the operating system.

    Bye.
