Is it  good thing ? People yeld at the FW dependencies, and now instead of removing it or make it standard and up to date for every Windows bundle, they just send you all of the FW packed with your executable file

In short, its a packer, nothing new, nothing great 😕

I can only really see this being useful for small IoT devices where you are deploying a specific program to it and nothing else. 

For a computer/server where you are running numerous applications built around the .NET framework, it makes 0 sense to bundle like this. You waste space, you lock the application to the included dependencies which can lead to security issues and other problems, among other things. 

Like Xeno said as well, this isn't new tech either, stuff like this already exists to do the same thing. It is nice that it's built into the framework now and is supported by Microsoft directly, but I just don't see it being that useful for many people. More of a niche thing for IoT devices imo.
