Newline in C# – \r\n ?

Coming originally from a VB background I was perfectly content using vbCrLf to add newlines to my strings.  Unable to find a C# equivalent, all my early C# code was scattered with ‘\r\n’ as a suitable replacement.
Works well, doesn’t it?
Well yes, right up until the point that you run it on a non-Windows system.  Unix, for example, uses just ‘\n’ and as you can imagine this makes things look just a little bit untidy.
Microsoft have very helpfully provided the perfect solution:
This handy little fella returns the newline string for the current platform.
For those of you who are interested the full rundown is here… Environment.NewLine
