My question is why did they f*ck around releasing core when it was eventually going to be rolled up into a new version of .Net?

When that happens, confusion will definitely reign.

What's funny is that as long as I'm working where I'm working, we will never see .Net 5 - or even .Net Core - in our dev environment. The federal government is ALWAYS at least five years behind the curve where dev tools are concerned.

In point of fact, our product will probably be end-of-lifed because we can't rewrite it with more modern frameworks, because we don't have the time or the man-power to do it. The problem is that I'm the only contractor on the team, and am therefore the only one who has a vested interest in seeing the app live on. Government employees don't generally care because they can just be shuffled off to new assignments...
