Some of our projects are very similar: interconnecting PLC's, manufacture DB's, process control systems and getting the result to layer 4 or 5.

The choice of technology you have in such an environment is really limited, because you often need to support various OS technologies and each version is fairly old. For Windows systems in particular, we have to support Vista with no updates, except for security patches.

Instead of using Java, which would be the obvious choice, we package everything into .NET Standard 2.0 libraries. For modern systems we run those with .NET Core, for legacy systems (both Unix and Windows) we use a custom Mono branch. It's always weird and nice to see brand new nugget packages actually working on Vista.
