comment What does it mean for software to run natively?
It's not that the question is bad per se, but it's not good for this site. As evidenced by the answers, it's not something that can be answered cleanly and has a number of arguments surrounding it, which makes its closing entirely appropriate according to the FAQ.

comment What does it mean for software to run natively?
@Ben Voigt: It's still a first-party API, the binaries are compiled to native x86/amd64 code (whether at runtime by the CLR or in advance with ngen), and the framework has been shipped with recent versions of Windows. This is part of a larger argument though, and not really appropriate here.

comment What does it mean for software to run natively?
Native also often implies that it's using the primary library set and API for the underlying platform, which can make distinctions a bit fuzzy. There's quite a few people who don't consider .NET applications to be "native" like Win32 API applications are "native", and similarly some people don't consider a KDE program running on a Gnome desktop "native".
