I think this is a very good point, more far reaching than it might at first 
seem. I mean, is dotgnu's approach to support primarily the lowest common 
denominator of all systems or will it extend into the special features of each

Thanks Rhys. But does dotgnu actually support pocket PC architectures e.g. ARM 
at the present time?

Sorry Rhys, I don't really know what you mean by this. Do you mean that, at 
present, handheld Linux devices are not fully supported but they will be if and 
when they are requested?
Btw, I'm sorry to bother the list with such tiresome and newbie questions. The 
information in faq's and readmes is scant at best, and maybe not completely up 
to data. I think if the info was updated then you could avoid some of the more 
trivial questions.
