    Phoronix: Microsoft's CoreCLR Now Works On FreeBSD

    It was back in February that Microsoft open-sourced CoreCLR, the execution engine of the core .NET stack. Besides coming to Linux and other platforms, this MIT-licensed engine has now been ported and is working for FreeBSD...

    Not working yet, still big step forward

    Hi,

    as the author of the last PR. What we archived yesterday is a complete build run. So we now have binaries, sadly they do not really work yet. But we continue working on it.

    One thing to point out is the fact, that this port was entirely communicant driven. We got great support from Microsoft, but the planning and work was done by community members. I hope that we soon have a working build. OpenBSD and NetBSD is also being worked on.

          Awesome! it's good to see the community bring up platform support so quickly, even if it's not ready just yet. It's things like this that should convince the remaining holdouts to go open source. The next year or so is going to be an interesting one.

              Will there be any official open-source application server for asp.net?

                I'm pretty sure it's not dead yet.

                  Is it just me or does it seem odd this language has so many people willing to make this happen? I'm not implying a conspiracy, just trying to understand what drives the rapid progress.

                    First, the CoreCLR is not a language. It is a compile target. Just like LLVM-IR and Java Runtime Environment.

                    To answer your question, C# is a decent language. If Microsoft had made it cross platform from the beginning, then it would be much more popular than it is today. Now, it has that chance. And, since it isn't directly controlled by Microsoft anymore, a lot more people will come to use it.

                    Now, there will be some that won't since it came from Microsoft, but Microsoft has put enough distance between themselves and the Foundation to bring in the largest majority of the fold.
