Ahh, Microsoft's notYet[Wiki] .NET platform, making issues like deploying software on all extant Linux distributions look trivial in comparison. How the hell can one platform have so many diverse and malfunctioning components?

I have a friend who's had great luck with Mono for deploying .NET stuff on linux, but from I've seen in regards to fellow linux weenies' opinions, it just looks like a giant security bypass to allow dangerous code to run on your linux machine with little protection.

Yeah, the particular situation we've got is a Windows Forms .NET app with some mixed unmanaged code that runs fine on 5 machines here in this office, but when it gets out in the field we're seeing several different crashes on various Windows machines.

I thought the advantage of a monolithic OS vendor was that you'd be able to write once and run on its hardware abstraction layer on any machine it deployed on... Choke.
