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.

Actually he is partly right, I recall reading the Mono FAQ for ASP.Net warning devevelopers about the common porting problems and the registry was one of them.

Also you need to explicity use App.Config and Web.Config. Its not automatic.
