Has anyone ever tried to get Visual Studio (not VSCode!) running in linux in something other than a virtual machine?
Little chance for that; too much components in there that will fail the install.

I had to wait for it to install some unplanned updates that rebooted the machine 3 times and took almost 10 minutes. And MS says windows boot times are fast. Mad | :mad:
..an update is not a normal boot. I love my Kubuntu-machine, but to be fair, I also love the VS on Windows, and it certainly doesn't take 10 minutes for a normal boot.

In Linux you'd be loosing more time after each update, since not every packages' dependence will update nicely, going through weird errors and copy/pasting a lot of commands in the console window.
