I just read an article about .NET ( and in it is says that "there have been a number of alternative CLR implementations".

It goes on to say: "Rotor was a project from Microsoft Research, is a version of the CLR that will run on Mac OS, and is shared source. Mono is an independent open source implementation of the CLR that runs on various Linux distributions. "

Does this mean that if I were to write a program in VB.NET, I could then run that progam on Linux, for example?  Is that what these statements are trying to say?

Thanks for your thoughts...Andy
