ASP.NET Core 1.0 Released!

DiscussThis day has been a long time coming but I want to congratulate the team at Microsoft for delivering the first version of ASP.NET Core! I’m very excited to start working with the bits on real projects.

If you haven’t had a chance to look at play with ASP.NET Core, it’s time! For the ASP.NET MVC and Web API users, the transition is pretty quick, but if you’re coming from ASP.NET Web Forms or another technology, there is a learning curve.

Scott Guthrie Aided Miguel de Icaza on Moonlight?


On the heels of my recent post about Microsoft and Linux, is this interesting article in SD Times.  It is being reported that at MIX 2007, Scott Guthrie (responsible for Silverlight et al) pulled aside Miguel de Icaza to help with technical guidance for Moonlight (the Mono-based, Open Source Linux Silverlight implementation). I think this is tremendous news.

Linux Foundation Calls for Respect for Microsoft


I've been around software and OS's for a long time and while my bread is buttered to some extent by my continued involvement in Microsoft's technologies, I've waded into Open Source projects here and there.

Linux is Falling down the Unix Hole

I've been watching the Linux news wires lately to see whether I should be putting any time into Mono and it looks to me like Linux is falling victim to the Unix disease of splintering into too many distributions that may or may not be compatible.  Here's what I am reading:

None of these stories are very damning on their own, but I am seeing a trend towards many conflicting distributions for specific needs.  Imagine an enterprise where you would need four or five different distro's to support.  Windows three tier OS (Home/Professional/Server) seems to be easier to manage (one company, one support contract, etc.)
