Why are you locked in? If you have web services calling web services it doesn't really matter what a web service is written in. There are some nice .net platforms that don't come from MS, like ServiceStack or Nancy. Even the MS Mvc.Net platform is mono compatible (and was already open source) so you can run Linux with docker running 6 instances of your service.

Depends on what you mean. We don't use linq to sql because you're not sure of the sql you'll generate. Linq to objects is quite nice. Joining two lists of objects in memory automatically rather than writing your own low level code to copy things over is awesome.

Which is probably more important than anything else. The benefit of open sourcing .net core is that mono will get better. So if you have a lot of existing .net code and want to get away from ms licensing, at least ms will keep the dev tool revenue.

fortune: cpu time/usefulness ratio too high -- core dumped.
