Did hell just freeze over?
In Microsoft's continued reach out to other platforms, developers can now use a version of their premiere IDE, Visual Studio, on Mac OS. While it's not the full-blown version Windows users can take advantage of, it does allow ease of workflow for multiplatform developers. Mac and Windows users can share projects as well as use Xamarin to develop apps for Windows, iOS, and Android as well as server development via .Net Core.
While this sounds kinda crazy on the surface for the tech giant, it's really an almost predictable move in line with their current "cloud first" strategy. Microsoft has been open to multiplatform in recent years, offering many tools and software across multiple operating systems and not requiring Windows to utilize their services.
The preview should drop November 16th at Microsofts Connect Conference
