    I know I should probably be answering this question instead of asking it, but does anyone have a compelling reason to install this yet? I can't think of one so far but I'm sure that will change. Has anyone installed it and had any negative issues?

    I only install stuf like .NET and Java when certain apps require me to do so, otherwise I don't see the point.

    If you are a C#/.net developer/software engineer and want to learn new version then it is really good reason to install it. The same argument goes for person responsible for CI/CD pipeline to see how it fits in in pipeline.
