A Tentative Well-Wishing for 20 Years of .NET - The New Stack .

Rust Coding



The 20th anniversary of .NET is upon us this week and with it, Microsoft is pulling out all the stops in celebration of what it says is “the most loved framework by developers for three years in a row now — 2019, 2020, 2021, according to Stack Overflow’s developer survey.”

First launched in 2002, .NET is, in some ways, something that Microsoft can roll out as evidence of its changed ways over the years. It went from a company embroiled in a monopoly case just a year before this release, to one that later decided to turn around, mend its former ways, and open source .NET Core.
