There are lots of other reasons developers and admins like the platform as well. But technical nuances are not how most corporate VPs and C-level executives make decisions. Fortunately, there are a lot of real-world, practical reasons why businesses and enterprises are moving their projects to ASP.NET Core … the kinds of things that impact the bottom line and warm the hearts or the most conservative CFOs.
