It's great to see someone is willing to take on this task! Building
the runtime and the class libs would indeed be a million times easier
on non-Linux platforms if we used pure MSBuild/XBuild files for the
build system. I fully encourage you to go ahead with this.

> 2.A MSBuild extension to support GCC on both windows and linux
> 3.A makefile translator.
> 4.A visualizing tool to edit MSBuild projects
> 4.A build server for freshbuild
> For such a project,there would always be plenty of test projects

> I am eager for you feedbacks.
