If I am on a computer named "box1" and type "\\box2\c$\WINDOWS\assembly" into my run directory and see a GAC window, you might assume I'd be looking at the GAC on box2. You'd be wrong.

Pulling up this directory on in windows explorer causes Windows to display the contents of the GAC on the local machine instead of the actual directory's contents. Browsing to this folder over the network does the same thing - show the GAC of the LOCAL machine.
