Agreed , Microsoft is playing 'safe' and as a .net developer it bugs me.
.net ecosystem which was first targeted for huge businesses,has higly invested in Microsoft only ecosystem. Today .net ecosystem is distributed between supporting legacy products and creating new microservices, this is where I see issue, going forward only one standard i.e. .Net 5 is expected, that will create so much blunder because .net framework apps will become somewhat legacy. Some might say you will have to adapt and move to newer technologies and patterns, but we should remember there are still some businesses running on COBOL making billions, it is a huge investment in migrating to newer standards if changes are breaking and time consuming.
