Microsoft is not your friend - even if they spend millions of dollars on sophisticated "open source" marketing campaigns to convince you otherwise. Use a genuinely free programming ecosystem that is open source, fully permissively licensed, and doesn't constitute an advertising campaign for a left-wing government-loving corporation.

The same obviously applies to avoiding Oracle (Java), Google (Go, Dart), and Apple (Swift). Mozilla (Rust) is even worse with many far-left political campaigns. Same for the JavaScript ecosystem (NPM) and Ruby...

'Even after the arrival of .NET 5, which is the successor to .NET Core 3.0, these three .NET frameworks will still exist. '

'Another is that two popular parts of the .NET Framework will not be in .NET 5. '

'"It's more like the .NET Framework except you can have multiple .NET Cores side by side even at the system level. '

'Although .NET Framework will continue, you can also compile Windows desktop applications with .NET Core 3.0 (currently in preview) and higher. '

'These frameworks are now open source; but note that it is only the .NET Core ports that are open source. '
