[Mono-list] A silly question: can you use Microsoft dlls with mono?

If I take Microsoft's implementation of System.Drawing.dll, and put it
in /usr/lib in place of the mono implementation, it would work?

After all, System.Drawing.dll is a piece of IL code...

(on the other hand, maybe not, because the Microsoft DLL p/invokes some
Win32 dll.)

I am asking because my code uses System.Drawing.Bitmap.LockBits, which
is still unimplemented, and I'm anxious to see how it runs on linux.

Thanks for your help!
