Future plan for DNN NEXT and .NET Core

    I've actually been following Oqtane very closely, as I was intending to rebuild my online role-playing game BrowserQuests (developed in DNN back in 2014) in Oqtane so I could abandon DNN and move to .NET Core/Blazor. On paper, the Oqtane project looks utterly awesome, and the fact that it's being led by Shaun Walker (the original developer of DNN) is a tremendous bonus in my eyes.

    The MVP (minimum viable product) is out now and I did indeed start working with it. My initial impression is that it has a LONG WAY to go before it can match what DNN already does (albeit in a much older technology stack). Indeed, after a week of working with it, I've decided to return to DNN and keep working on my project at least for the next year or two.

    Naturally, I'm very curious about the future of DNN, not just to see whether it ever adopts a .NET Core framework but whether the overall community will last as well. To be frank, it doesn't look good for DNN right now, but some seem to still be working in it (such as the Vanjero effort at https://www.vanjaro.com). To that end, I'm curious about what others think is the realistic future of DNN...
