This is a great start but I still find .net framework & .net core confusing. May be small example (not code) would have been nice.

A short summary would be: .NET Framework allows you to build Windows apps (desktop) and webapps; .NET Core allows you to build cross platform webapps (so, no desktop apps).

The reason is .NET Core doesn't ship with any cross platform desktop graphical class library unlike .NET Framework (ships with at least 3: Windows Forms, Windows Presentation Foundation and Universal Windows Platform).

I beg to differ. I am building a desktop/server app in .Net core right now.

What UI framework are you using for the GUI?

Really not sure what there is to find confusing. It's just a runtime with currently terrible tooling. 99% of what you write on full .NET is going to be the same on core.
