The .NET ecosystem is comprised of three high-level components:
First released in 2001, the original and now so-called ‘traditional’ .NET Framework, supports the creation of desktop, console, mobile and web applications.
.NET Framework is distributed with Windows and its applications. The Framework is monolithic, which means that you can’t use it without installing all its base.
This structure has proved to be a disadvantage in Cloud environments due to diminished performance.
Build Web applications using ASP.NET MVC on the .NET Framework
Build Windows applications using UWP, WPF and Windows Forms on the .NET Framework
Provide Windows services including; Networking, Application deployment, Type and memory safety, APIs, Data structures, Memory management, Security.
.NET core is the new generation and future of .NET technologies. It is typically used to build cloud applications and in refactoring enterprise applications into microservices. .NET Core has the following main features:
Light and Modular: Install only what you need. (It’s not monolithic like .NET Framework)
Scalable, high capacity, and high Performance: Especially useful in Cloud environments where such efficiencies translate into substantial cost savings over time
Has a significant open source and GitHub community
Used to build mobile apps on iOS, OS X, Android, and Windows Mobile.
