".NET programs are constructed from "Assemblies". An Assembly "

They CALLED Asembler Assembly...

cmax... don't confuse a .NET Assembly with an Assembler or Assembly language... they are completely different things.

Hi Shawn.. thanks for the link, interesting stuff.

I'd have some questions:

1) Which Windows versions (including Service Packs) are able to execute .NET PE executables?

2) Does Microsoft eventually plans in the (near or less near) future to make become .NET the standard not only for small Internet applications, but even e.g. for 3D arcade games?

3) Are there already any "famous" programs out there 100% .NET, or it's (at this time) more a talking about a "technology" which is about to come?

1) >= win 98
2) i dont' believe so
3) just two viruses/worms that have made names for themselves and have gained fame by being .NET programs.

So from Win98 on there's a .NET Just In Time compiler?

Yes, i don't believe its supported for win95. You can get the framework and the tools on MS's website.

So .NET PE files won't run on e.g. "my uncle's PC where he just installed Windows", but will run only on PC's where some .NET framework extensions have been installed?

That is correct Maverick, but there is a group of people
working on a non-M$ version of .NET called Mondo, iirc.
