 >>If you really mean to execute an arbitrary file
(Process.Start("foo.xlsx") will open foo.xlsx in Excel, on Windows, for
example) then call "/usr/bin/xdg-open thing" - this is probably the most
useful use-case, and is also valid when thing is a URL, opening in the
default browser.
AFAIK, xdg-open is used by Mono implementation of Process.Start if
UseShellExecute=true (which is default). It's same on Windows -
CreateProcess doesn't start Excel, it returns you an error, while
ShellExecute does.
