Don’t confuse with a name I’m not saying .NET Core 5.0, It’s .NET 5.0, In .NET 5.0 everything comes under one roof, which is .NET 5.0, this is a big step for Microsoft, the idea behind this step is now all .NET runtime come into single .NET platform with unified BCL(base class libraries). we also can say .NET 5.0 = .NET Framework 4.8 + .NET Core 3.1.
First, if we wanna use .NET 5.0 we must have Visual Studio 2019 with a minimum of 16.8 version.
