Wow, now you've decided to attack me when you have no references to support your rebuttal?

Have a look at the Mono porting guide on uses for the registry:
The registry classes are provided on Linux, but these are only useful as long as they reference configuration options that your application uses.

Get it? That is why it is there! It then goes on to say:

The registry classes will not provide any useful information about any operating system configuration or settings.

Clear on what the registry support in Mono is for? Need a link?:

So, in an article talking about how mono is being ported to the iphone and wii, your point against mono is that until for years ago, applications might have used the registry to store app settings? LOL


My point had always been this:

But I guess you are too blind to see the woods for the trees.

The registry and PE format were meant as examples to prove my point above which you were too blind to see.

I'm not sure why you say I attacked you, but in any case, of everything I've said in my reply, what do you think it needs to be backed by a reference?

I don't know what are you trying to demonstrate with this. Yes, Mono implements some basic registry support which can be used to store application settings. .NET Applications using the registry for that purpose can be directly ported to Mono thanks to that. So what? Do you have a reference saying that Mono encourages using the registry?

Oh yeah, typical troll behavior: making a misleading assertion, and when rebutted, saying "you are too stupid to understand my point".

Whoa, nice pulling in a fast one there. Where did I say that Mono encourages using the registry? I've claimed that Mono provides registry functionality as there are many .Net apps that use them.

On the other hand, from your most recent posts, you have now been cautious to back down on your claim that .Net apps typically use user.config after I have pointed out that it did not exist prior to .Net 2.0 and Mono 2.0.
