Dear Team,

is there even the tiniest chance that you will develop a Visual Assist version that does not require visual studio ?
there is a market! you certainly know CLion.

the biggest drawback to visual assist is that it is chained to visual studio.

in the long run, i will fully switch to linux. there is no visual studio for linux, end even if it was, i do not agree with microsofts data collection and cloud first strategie. one example: why on earth forces microsoft developers to register an account and log in just to use the community edition of VS? i can not see any reason other than shameless data collection.

We don't currently have any plans for a stand alone VA. While working inside Visual Studio complicates matters, it also provides a lot of existing editor that we don't then have to provide ourselves.

As for the community edition requiring an account, it seems nearly everything requires an account these days, which gets wearing, especially when they all want to cross link your accounts. Separate accounts for everything is one approach here.

thanks for your reply.
if hell freezes, maybe microsoft will release a linux version of visual studio. visual studio is often the only reason for me to boot up windows. its so much better than any other C++ IDE i tried yet.

Have you tried putting Visual Studio into a Windows virtual machine? Not quite the same, but it might make things a bit easier and more painless for you.
