Take these facts into consideration if you are planning to support your .NET solution in future.

Lastly, when making the choice, don’t feel like you are alone in this task. Remember that your application likely has several components to it that may be third party, OEM products or embedded solutions. It’s a wise idea to reach out to these companies and have a conversation about their integrated technology that powers your application. The more you know, the better decision you will make.
