I too like .NET as an environment, but as long as Microsoft is the only full implementor of the language and libraries, one is liable to run into the kind of issues that you mention. They are the only ones that specify the CLR, and everyone else must fall in line.

That is one of the reasons that I prefer to work in standardized languages such as C++. I know exactly what I'm getting (and not getting), and if a compiler implementor decides not to support part of the Standard, there are other fish in the sea.

Could you not create a wrapper around the parts of Microsoft's DNF that you need, providing the same functionality where it exists, but your own implementation where it doesn't? That would at least allow the rest of your code to remain unchanged.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
