Ok, my bad.

So here is my new suggestion:
By default, we use the CodeDOM, ie, if no settings are configured the
platform/version independant setting is used. User's can choose the
currentframework setting, and if so will use the current infrastructure.
That way, by default, neither windows nor linux users are forced to
config, but the flexability is provided.
