How could there be such a thing as an ECMA instruction set? Maybe a
system in accordance with Microsoft's submission of CLR to ECMA. They
claim they have someone working on supporting this on linux, and they
will use all their muscle to prevent it from going free software, not
that many free software advocates would touch it with a 10 foot pole.
Besides, various types of free software licenses require distribution of
source code, whihc is far more useful than a CLR executable.
