Discussion on: .Net 5 is PERFECT for DevOps

Unlike Java, .Net isn’t truly multi platform.

What makes it not truly multi-platform? I've been deploying projects to Linux + nginx for years. I've done extensive development on Mac. Zero issues.

If you drill down and try to use your existing projects on different platforms you end up with not supported exceptions.

If a legacy project was built for Windows, that is on that project, not the .NET ecosystem. Yes, .NET is in the middle of transitioning out of its Windows-only past, but new projects are plenty portable.
