I know that an x86 interpreter (not a virtual machine) is not practical
at all but I think it's the best option if we would MONO to run that
MC++ software in multiple platforms. I was also thinking in a x86 to IL

I think that it's very hard to run in MONO all the software that is
compiled in MS.NET for design mistakes in that (MS.NET). I think that
the real problem is in MS.NET (in their strategy with the assemblies,
a lot of them depends of windows).

See you,
