reading the latest news are you prepared for the big shifts where
- win and uwp (and mfc) will all merge into "windows forms" (or whatever) and,
- .net will merge with .net core into .net core
- new sql stuff, but mostly the old stuff under a different name
so as they claim it'll be the same everywhere/every platform ... except where it's not

(ok, probably got some of that wrong, but then again they themselves release conflicting information each week.)

but with absolute surety you can also rely on
- changing the names of those and other unified platforms/packages (more than once)
- more platforms where "it'll be the same" with more where it actually wont be the same
- removal of more useful features, addition of new useless features and more bloat

happily moving to 2017 now they've stopped buggering about with that.
