in thread What do you think about ActiveState's Visual Perl .NET??

My understanding of these matters is that if you write .NET specific code then there is no reason to expect cross-platform compatibility. So I dont see that its a sham. Its kindof like writing code that uses System V IPC rouines and expecting it to run on a Win32 box.

Im sure that when Microsoft said portability they meant from one Win32 Box to another ;-)

And you dont really believe anything that MS says anyway do you?

    No, I don't believe Microsoft. But others tend to believe their marketing message. Which is a good reason to point out discrepancies between reality and what Microsoft claims in their marketing.
