Visual Studio for Linux?

Since Microsoft & .NET Team is pushing so hard in the cross-platform solutions, will the Linux community see Visual Studio run on Linux? Since it is a great IDE with amazing tools, some of us are wondering will we see it on our preferred OS? I'm in love with the .NET, improvements and opportunities it gives. C# is my first and favourite language and I just can't get enough of it. Love everything. But I'm on Linux, as a platform of choice(Arch Linux, to be specific), and sometimes I miss the good tool VS. Yes, we have VSCode, but the performance isn't always there. And sometimes, it just isn't performing good enough or have enough features. There already is "Visual Studio for macOS", ported from the MonoDevelop. And since they just can't keep up with the real VS IDE, they left developing it. So, the decade old question remains. And since .NET 6 unifies all platforms, is there a chance we can see it ported? I'm sure there are a lot of people wishing it too.

I'm right there with you on that one. I've been a developer for 37 yrs. Linux is lacking in developer tools. Visual Studio for Linux would be the best thing that ever happened to Linux IMO..

They got the idea and it is under consideration. If you think it is important for you, please vote.

Btw, in the meantime the expected way to work on "for Linux" project is to install the distros under WSL on Win10 and debug there.
