The new tool, called Visual Studio Code, makes it easy to develop .NET code along with many other programming languages on Linux based systems.
It's monumental for Microsoft as it marks the first time the company has ever made Visual Studio cross-platform, truly embracing those that it's previously feuded with.
Microsoft said that Visual Studio Code will help complete the Visual Studio product family and is “incredibly lightweight.”
One feature the company touted heavily was full Intellisense support, along with Git version tracking.
Visual Studio Code is available for free, beginning today and you'll be able to download it here when it goes live.
