    Phoronix: Wine-Mono Won't Bother With .NET 5.0 - The Official Microsoft Binaries Should Work Fine

    Microsoft announced on Tuesday that the .NET 5.0 release is now "feature complete" for this major overhaul of .NET that breaks compatibility with prior versions. Microsoft .NET 5.0 has many changes to its libraries and runtimes, introduces WebAssembly support, support for single file applications/executables, new APIs, better performance, and much more...

        "albeit using the official Microsoft binaries"

        It's opensource. They are free to compile it themselves.

          It's not fully open-source but some components are blobs.

            I cannot believe that, it is really released as pure opensource license without caveats...

            I noticed that a lot of companies prefer release their software or stack as MIT (and similar) rather than GPL3... Both have the same effect eventually.

              That's interesting - I was not aware of that.

              Do you have any further information about these binary blobs (or provide a hint of what to search for)?

                That is just .NET Core... Coreeee....

                This is the whole .NET with more libraries than just Core... several Microsoft or Windows-specific.


                Anyways, .NET Framework does run for me to a degree it is good enough for running osu!... with the caveat that your prefix has to be pure 32-bit...

                  From the link in this article - ""One reason to fork it might be to remove dependencies on proprietary components, most notably PresentationNative_cor3.dll, and Microsoft SDK build tools. Some of the work I've been doing with WPF may help with that, but it's still incomplete and would need to be forward-ported to the current version of WPF.
