Linux Linux is struggling on the desktop because it only has a small number of "great" apps, according to the Gnome co-creator. Miguel de Icaza, co-creator of the Gnome desktop, told tech journalist Tim Anderson at the recent Windows 8 Build conference "When you count how many great desktop apps there are on Linux, you can probably name 10," de Icaza said, according to a post on Anderson's IT Writing blog. "You work really hard, you can probably name 20. We've managed to p*** off developers every step of the way, breaking APIs all the time."

So the Microsoft Community Promise dosent exist? C# Language Specification - Ecma-334, 4th Edition and ISO/IEC 23270:2006 Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) - Ecma-335, 4th Edition and ISO/IEC 23271:2006

DotGNU Portable.NET, an implementation of the Common Language Infrastructure (CLI), more commonly known as ".NET", includes everything that you need to compile and run C# and C applications that use the base class libraries, XML, and Systems.Windows.Forms.

The Microsoft Community Promise certainly doesn't exist for Systems.Windows.Forms. I beleive also that it doesn't exist for .NET XML.
