does anyone know, does this new iteration of .net, completely replaces .net 4x, as in can i remove 4x and install this v6 thing ?
because i read that who ever made apps on previous versions had to recompile, thus does this core thing even have backwards compatibility or not ?
and, is it a spyware ? since it is obviously meant for windows 10 and 11, and does it even support win 7 ?

No, .NET 5 and 6 are based on ".NET Core" not framework, so you still need 4.x

Yes it is, but not as much as other Microsoft products https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/core/tools/telemetry
