MSBuild has been the primary build system in the .NET ecosystem since its introduction in 2005; however, it suffers from many of the same weaknesses we've previously called out in Maven. The .NET community has started to develop alternatives to MSBuild which are easier to maintain and more flexible, and evolve more fluidly as a project grows. Two of these alternatives are Cake and Fake. Cake uses a DSL built in C#, while Fake uses F#. Each has seen significant growth over the last year and has proven to be a viable alternative to MSBuild for orchestrating common build tasks in .NET projects.
