It's more like the .NET Framework except you can have multiple .NET Cores side by side even at the system level.
Am I the only one who's getting fed up with that line? It's perfectly possible to have multiple versions of .NET Framework side-by-side at the system level. It's how things worked prior to .NET 4.5, when they decided to make all future releases in-place upgrades.

The fact that they don't have the resources to make a new side-by-side version of the full framework doesn't mean that it's impossible to do it, or that multiple side-by-side installs is somehow a "new" feature of .NET Core.
Quote:
That enables us to service one common component if there's a security vulnerability. ... I don't think we've serviced .NET Core through Windows Update... We haven't made the decision yet.
Again, having one place to patch when there's a security vulnerability isn't some new thing in .NET Core; it's the default behaviour with the full framework. And the full framework gets updated via Windows Updates; it doesn't require developers to recompile every line of code they've ever written every couple of weeks to fix the security vulnerabilities. D'Oh! | :doh:


And surely I can't be the only one thinking that this sounds like XKCD 927[^]?
