Microsoft and Canonical announce native .NET availability in Ubuntu 22.04 hosts and containers

Install the ASP .NET, .NET SDK and .NET runtime with a single command on Ubuntu 22.04

Canonical is proud to welcome the .NET development platform, one of Microsoft’s earliest contributions to open source projects, as a native experience on Ubuntu hosts and container images, starting in Ubuntu 22.04 LTS.

.NET developers will be able to start their Linux journey with Ubuntu, benefiting from timely security patches and new releases, and .NET 6 users and developers can now install the .NET 6 packages on Ubuntu with a simple sudo apt install dotnet6 command. Optimised, pre-built, ultra-small container images are also now available to use out of the box.

.NET as an Ubuntu .deb package is the result of a close collaboration between Microsoft and Canonical. The two companies are working together to deliver timely security patches and new releases to Ubuntu. This is the foundation for more capabilities to follow for the open-source framework on Ubuntu, for hosts and minimised container images.
