    And it does not specifically require any paid extended support contract from Microsoft to actually install and run.

    I am a member of the .NET team at Microsoft. We support a variety of Linux distros for .NET. We currently don't support the Arch family at all. I've been working to get that fixed for reasons that will be obvious to all of you. Also, this post demonstrates that it works great.
  • A Brief F# Exploration | 2021-04-09
    I agree with the author about the slow inner loop experience. Recompiling the whole app to see browser changes gets tiring. The .NET team is planning a series of updates to address this in .NET 6.

    I also dislike the default workflow for dealing with Nuget forks. I switched to Paket for dependency management which makes this much simpler.

    🏫 I’m happy to see an epic around appealing to new developers and students, and there are epics around teaching entire classes in .NET Notebooks in VS Code and making setup easier. They’re also prioritizing democratizing machine learning with stories for using data when training in the cloud and better data loading options. | 2020-12-05
    It’s a fun time in the .NET 6 release cycle—there’s a lot of design and high-level discussions going on, as it’ll be 11 months before it actually ships. You can definitely look at things like the .NET Product Roadmap, but .NET PM Immo Landwerth has built a Themes of .NET site, which shows off the GitHub themes, epics, and stories slotted for .NET 6. (As if you had to ask, yes, it’s built with Blazor.)
