CLR and Virtual Machines

Those of you who argue against using Mono or .NET because of the virtual machine, just think about it in a different way. It's a encoded form of source code that gets compiled to machine code for you automatically. It gives the closed-source world the same portability features the open-source world has had.

If the world ever does break out of the x86 instruction set monopoly, the CLR (or JVM) is the only thing that will prevent closed-source programs from needing one version per processor type.
