Decisions about ServiceStack

Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose ServiceStack in their tech stack.

Needs advice

I am currently using ServiceStack nuget package which has a dependency on ServiceStack.Common nuget package which in turn uses System.Common.Data.dll file. Now this dll file is not supported by .NET standard version 2.0.

Hence my whole project is in limbo. I want all the dependencies should either support .NETStandard 2.0 or .NET Core 6 version.

Now I can only get .NET Core 6 when I replace ServiceStack nuget package altogether with ASP.NET Core.

Has anyone faced this before? Thanks.
