Support Microsoft .NET Core and .NET Framework on IBM i
Microsoft Corp. has "open sourced" the .NET Core and .NET Framework, as well as the .NET compilers, etc., so now is the time for IBM to bring the .NET Core and .NET Frameworks to IBM i.
.NET is a major software development platform, on par with Java, with perhaps as large or a larger development community than Java. .NET is. very relevant in today's world of developing "microservices" and web services in an SOA delivery model.
Providing support for .NET would open up a vast world of .NET languages and compilers to be available to IBM i developers, and to allow porting vast amounts of applications that have already been developed in .NET on other platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac OS) to be easily ported to run on IBM i, especially "console" command line utilities and web apps.
This would help to make the "IBM i" platform appear even more modern and relevant in today's competitive environment, attracting a whole new generation and army of .NET developers to the IBM i platform.
This will help to bring new vitality to the IBM i platform.
