don't you find it odd that your Mono apps compile to exe and dlls with the need for a Windows like registry on Linux/Mac?

Yes, that's being ignorant, because the .exe and dlls created by Mono indeed doesn't need the registry, is the for compatiblity for applications exported from windows to linux, is just there by choice and not by "need".

You are not making sense, if the registry is optional then there would be no need to emulate it. Then developers could do without it since running on Mono would require porting anyway. Sheesh! Try running a few ASP.Net apps under Mono then come back and post here!

Also, how about creating standard ELF binaries on Linux instead of the windows PE junk?

Asp.Net applications use the Web.Config file, not the registry, wow, what an ignorant.

Speaking of ignorance..........

This is just something you lusers don't get and never will. I've been cool with that for a while. The vast, vast, vast majority of applications written for Mono are going to have been ported to Mono from Windows. Ergo, a great deal of applications use the registry for various reasons and if something compatible isn't available on Mono then Mono becomes useless because you can't port the application. I mean come on, why does Mono have its own registry implementation at all if it isn't 'needed'? Why is someone even talking about writing a GTK# registry editor?

I'm afraid all that happens is that rather than being a reasonable cross-platform way of getting applications up and running Mono is just going to be sucked into implementing ever more esoteric bits of Microsoft and Windows infrastructure in very imperfect ways.

wow, you are talking out of your ass already, in windows programming is not mandatory the use of the registry, in my almost 10 yeas of windows programing I've used the registry once, and then I rewrote the same funtion to use local .ini file. So, telling the best aproach for a windows application is to use the registry just show how ignorant you are, you are a vb6 wannabe programmer for Christ sake.

But since you are just the official anti mono troll, what could I spect?
