What is Microsoft's alternative to what they have not programmed in .Net?

I'm trying to convert several applications from .Net Framework 4.8 to .Net 8.

At this moment I already know the most important problems that I cannot solve and they are these:

-System.Net.HttpWebRequest/HttpWebResponse

-Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word

What are the alternatives? I can't open a web page and I can't open a Word document using C# and .Net 8?

On occasion I have read the opinion of someone from Microsoft saying: "this is important and we may do it again in the future."

It's one thing that Microsoft has made stupid excuses not to do this type of thing and save time, and another thing is that many years have passed and they still don't do it.

Not only that, but they have stopped supporting and updating the .Net Framework. Millions of computer scientists around the world are paying for it.

This isn't serious, right?

C#
An object-oriented and type-safe programming language that has its roots in the C family of languages and includes support for component-oriented programming.

    System.Net.HttpWebRequest/HttpWebResponse is supported in NET8, see bottom of the following page for supported frameworks. For Word, either a paid for library or a free library such as this one.
