Let me tell you: when I compiled "hello, world" using csc on
Windows, ran it there, then copied the binary to Linux and ran
it there using the Mono runtime, and saw it work, I got a small
sparkle of hope in my heart. That's what interop is all about.

If you want to run on Free Software Only for some political
reason, just develop with GTK# instead of Windows Forms.
