Hi Sorin, just a warning,

Last time I saw it, the proprietary license of the Enterprise Library
(read the EULA), prohibits you to compile/run it in any other OS other
than Windows, I don't remember if it also prohibits you to run it with
other framework implementation, like Mono, in Windows, but it may

So please, be careful, not to buy you some legal problems.
