confused Any plans to port SWORD to Microsoft .NET?

I know Borland Turbo C++ is the favorite developer platform, but is there any possibility that a port to Microsoft .NET is in the wings?  The reason I ask is "IF ported to .NET, there is a possibility that it would run under Linux/Mono if done correctly."

Just the ramblings of a multi-platform old man with the desire to run my apps in both Linux AND Windows.

I think there are .Net SWIG bindings. They probably need some work to be useful.

SWORD is able to be compiled with g++ and will work on Linux just as well as on Windows. I know of at least three applications using it on both platforms (to varying levels of capability): Xiphos, BPBible and BibleTime.

Re: Any plans to port SWORD to Microsoft .NET?

I mean the original question was about making a cross-platform application. It seemed possible that using .NET was just an implementation detail.
