Solely for business. For personal use, it is too big for me, not far from Java.

My currently and/or last active projects are written in C, C++, Racket and cough C#. But only because I already started with it and I want to complete the damn thing, I swear. Other than that, the number of languages I have used at a certain point in time is growing. My current favorites are:

  • C (obviously).
  • Common Lisp (gradually moving to Racket though).
  • Delphi.

C# .Net Framework or C# using .Net Core?

.Net Core is so much simpler and easier to use. You can build your stuff using linux if that's preferable?

No, it's not - it's really, really not. :-) Currently, I'm exploring both frameworks at work.

James,

.Net core won't be truly comparable with any of the languages listed until coreRT/similar ships with AOT and single file native targeting, non-.net language assembly accessibility.

Well, the exception to the complexity/fat runtime argument is probably delphi, but that conversation quickly gets religious and is best avoided.

lol Are you integrating the two using net standard by any chance?
