"A second obvious benefit of MSIL [Microsoft Intermediate Language] is that
it decouples your EXEs and DLLs from any specific operating system or
hardware platform. Microsoft currently has plans to ship a version of the
CLR [Common Language Runtime] for Windows 2000, Windows NT®, Windows 98, and
Windows 95. However, MSIL is powerful because it gives your DLLs and EXEs
the potential of running on platforms other than those based on the Intel
x86 processors.

"You are likely to see a version of the CLR for Windows CE in the near
future. It is also entirely possible that you will see implementations of
the CLR built for other operating systems and hardware platforms as well."

And, from http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/periodic/period00/framework.htm:

"Once written and built, a managed .NET application (that consists entirely
of managed code ... ) can execute on any platform that supports the .NET
common language runtime. It is even possible that a version of the common
language runtime could be built for platforms other than Windows in the
future. Users will immediately appreciate the value of this broad execution
model when they need to support multiple computing hardware configurations
or operating systems."
