  1. The .NET Framework provides a run-time environment called the common language runtime, which runs the code and provides services that make the development process easier.
  2. It is the job of the CLR to translate the intermediate code into executable code when a program is run. Thus, any program compiled to MSIL can be run in any environment for which the CLR is implemented.
  3. The runtime automatically handles object layout and manages references to objects, releasing them when they are no longer being used. Objects whose lifetimes are managed in this way are called managed data.
  4. Garbage collection eliminates memory leaks as well as some other common programming errors.
