.net is platform independent or platform dependent?
.net is very much platform dependent. The MS idea was to make an all-purpose library and let scripts, languages utilize that library, more or less replacing DOS commands. There are openSource projects with Linux underway that will allow this to change a little bit so that we can use the .net libraries with programs running in a Linux OS. I view it as a java knockoff. The java API is 5meg. The .net API is 8-9gig. Users will have to have the 9gig libraries to make a custom button work.
