.NET vs Vert.x: 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, Vert.x is detailed as "A tool-kit for building reactive applications on the JVM". It is event driven and non blocking application framework. This means your app can handle a lot of concurrency using a small number of kernel threads. It lets your app scale with minimal hardware.
.NET and Vert.x belong to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack.
.NET is an open source tool with 11.2K GitHub stars and 2.41K GitHub forks. Here's a link to .NET's open source repository on GitHub.

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.
