Before knowing more about this latest framework firstly we will have a brief idea about Microsoft .net. 

Brief History Of Microsoft .Net:-

.Net framework is almost 17 years into the market and has successfully developed thousands of applications. With the development of all these applications, the weight of the .Net framework has become incredibly heavy. So the Microsoft team has dropped the idea to innovate the .Net framework as it was less important.

Brief History Of Microsoft .Net:

Further, Microsoft developed .Net Core which turned out to be a great product, and then started attracting Linux and Mac users. Alongside these two versions of .Net – .Net framework and .Net core, Microsoft released .Net 5 – the future of .Net. This also added that the .Net 5 will be both open source and cross-platform. It means this will replace .Net Framework, Xamarin, and .Net Core with a single unified platform. 

With the announcement of .Net 5, we noticed that Microsoft is skipping .Net 4 to avoid the mix-ups. Microsoft did this to maintain the balance between the upcoming versions.
