public static void Main()
  Uri url;
  Uri.TryCreate("/Hello/World", UriKind.RelativeOrAbsolute, out url);

**End of Code**

The above piece of code throws "InvalidOperationException" in .NET but prints "file" in mono. It identifies the URI as Absolute instead of Relative.

So MonoMac are the open source binding for writing desktop mac applications. This bug is not in the right location. Moving.

As I mentioned in the ASP.NET MVC Github repo, this seems like expected behaviour. /Hello/World  is a valid absolute URI on Linux; it refers to the file located at /Hello/World.

There is a doc explaining why the UriKind.RelativeOrAbsolute cannot be fixed
along with a workaround.
