.NET vs OSGi: What are the differences?
Developers describe .NET as "A free, cross-platform, open source developer platform for building many different types of applications". .NET is a general purpose development platform. With .NET, you can use multiple languages, editors, and libraries to build native applications for web, mobile, desktop, gaming, and IoT for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and more. On the other hand, OSGi is detailed as "The Dynamic Module System for Java". It is a Java framework for developing and deploying modular software programs and libraries. It provides a vendor-independent, standards-based approach to modularizing Java software applications and infrastructure.
