.NET vs PHP-MVC: What are the differences?
.NET: 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; PHP-MVC: Simple and easy to understand MVC skeleton application. This project is - by intention - NOT a full framework, it's a bare-bone structure, written in purely native PHP ! The php-mvc skeleton tries to be the extremely slimmed down opposite of big frameworks like Zend2, Symfony or Laravel.
.NET and PHP-MVC can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
.NET and PHP-MVC are both open source tools. It seems that .NET with 11.1K GitHub stars and 2.4K forks on GitHub has more adoption than PHP-MVC with 1.25K GitHub stars and 494 GitHub forks.
Stack Exchange, Microsoft, and Starbucks are some of the popular companies that use .NET, whereas PHP-MVC is used by BetRocket, Digimedia ENVISION, and Scaffolder. .NET has a broader approval, being mentioned in 1566 company stacks & 239 developers stacks; compared to PHP-MVC, which is listed in 11 company stacks and 8 developer stacks.

Microsoft has done an incredible job of keeping the .NET Framework powerful and stable. It is well designed and keeps getting more robust with each release. It isn't the most popular technology in this space, but I think a good case can be made to use .NET in many new projects.
As we started on Windows Phone we use C# and .NET for most of our apps and sites. Being a small team of 2, using .NET enables us to work on each part of the service without having to switch to different languages.
I use .NET alongside with C# since my university studies, and I really enjoy it. Especially .NET Core, which is the best thing that happened to Microsoft since... ever.
