Discussion on: Remove old .NET versions with the new uninstall tool

Is there a tool which works like Node version manager or pyenv? It's great that dotnet is useable on the command line, but I'm still disappointed with how a lot of works. It just seems to be missing some basic functionality sometimes.

To my knowledge there isn’t a tool to manage versions like nvm. There’s the .NET CLI which allows listing of .NET versions etc, and the above tool to uninstall. On Windows and Mac Installing .NET is usually done with an MSI and DMG, respectively. But a more holistic tool to handle installing/uninstalling would be very much welcomed. Maybe something the community could develop if MSFT don’t...?
