How can we improve Microsoft Visual Studio for Mac?

MSbuild support for existing .NET projects

It would be a awesome idea to build (msbuild) and publish (ASP.NET MVC + Webform) from existing projects that has been running on a windows environment without any complications or involving third party (mono).

        I agree, considering I would like to deploy to some VMs in Parallels in some cases that I don't want to have Visual Studio installed in. I already do some basic work in Safari by accessing sites running in IIS on Paralles.

        .net core runs on Mac and is supported. Are you thinking that windows .net 3 and 4 projects could run on a mac? They can't.. ASP.NET 4.x and WebForms, and WinForms, and WCF, and WPF and all that are only windows technologies and can't be ported to mac.
