    I'm actually surprised they offer it as a .deb package.

        Why not snap? Make it a snap dammit so it can suck.

        This is another evidence that M$ is paying Canonical to not make dotnet6 a failure if it was to be a snap, while typical enduser endures great suffering using snap software like Firefox.
        M$ took Unity from which was the last decent DE, https://liam-on-linux.dreamwidth.org/85359.html

          Is it just me, or Miguel de Icaza being appalled by Microsoft's actions surrounding .NET is kind of hilarious? I mean, what did they expect?

              I guess I'm alone in thinking - This is fantastic news. The idea that someone can write a .NET app and it can be expected to natively run on Linux is quite a good thing.

              How many of the major applications that the major software houses create run on .NET?

              Suddenly, is Microsoft Office a native Linux application now? Suddenly, is the full-sized Visual Studio a Linux application now? What about other things by other companies? Are any of Adobe's programs written with .NET and 6.0 compliant? I'm sure there are a lot of big dependencies that may still be missing, such as a missing Registry.

              Maybe I'm wrong about the implications here. Am I? How hard would it be at that point to port a native Linux application(.net 6.0) to Linux?

                I guess it's not snap because snap itself doesn't work in docker containers (where .Net would be relevant)

                  The irony isn't lost on me. It's funny how MS ended up acquiring mono. There's got to be some anti-trust lawsuit in there.

                    Wasn't it already possible with .NET 5.0?
