Default Why Dictionary is serializable

Hi
I know that in .Net Dictionary is serializable and I found my own work around in order to solve this issue in my [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]application[/COLOR][/COLOR] but I'm very curious for knowing the reason for it.
Does anyone know the reason why Dictionary is serializable ?
Thanks
Amir

Same reason you might need to serialize any other collection -- to pass it over a wire, to a database or web service, etc...
