  • Hi MagdiR,

    Thank you for posting here.

    As shown in the figure below, multiple implementations of .NET are available depending on the OS platform (Windows, Linux, MacOS, iOS, Android and Windows 10 UWP) and workload type (server/desktop/mobile), all of them based on open .NET Standards that specify the fundamentals of the platform.

    Taking into account the internal frameworks, class libraries and common infrastructure, the following diagram is the current overall picture as of June 2016.

    For more details, please refer to the following link.
