.NET/Mono pretty much runs anywhere now, from the iPhone to Playstation VITA, so you can use C# anywhere.


Sure you can use C# anywhere. What you can't do is use the associated proprietary class libraries such as Winforms anywhere. So if one writes software using C# in conjunction with Winforms, then it becomes Windows-only software.

If you want to write software which is inherently not Windows-only software, you need to avoid class libraries which are Windows-only. So perhaps use GTK or Qt, and not Winforms. Users of .NET almost universally fail to do this, and hence they limit themselves to writing only for Windows, which as Gartner points out in 2014 is expected to fall to 15% of the market.

You really are clueless.
