How portable are C# programs/products on Unix and Mac O/S. Say for example can we write an word processing code in C# which runs very smoothly on windows and deploy it easily on Unix.

Hi anshuma,
Well, yes you can to a certain exent. As long as you do not make use of a lot of OS API specific calls then it is quite portable. What you need to look into is Mono, which is something of an open source .NET implementation.:


Hope this is what you were looking for.
