creating OS X apps with Microsoft Visual Studio

Yes, it's possible, and we will tell you how.

Since .NET Framework uses Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) Virtual Machine, all we need to do is to install equivalent of .NET Framework for OS X, and all applications written for .NET Framework should work on OS X.

In Creating Mac OS X applications with MS Visual Studio Express, we will tell you how easy it is. Just need to download a few tools and they are all free. (Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Express is free as well.)

For more detail, please read Creating Mac OS X applications with MS Visual Studio Express.

The article was based on Toki Kanno’s article in Chinese. It has been translated and re-arranged with permission. The article was not to recommend using Visual Studio to create applications for Mac, but to demonstrate it's doable. Apple's Xcode is still the preferred software.
