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

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?

Hmm, besides the personal attacks any links to MS documentation to prove your so-called expertise? Hmm?

Or are you just as good as blowing hot air as the rest of the .Net developer posers?
