Are there any plans on writing a official ide for .net languages?

Are there any plans on writing a official ide for .net languages once this os comes out of beta?
I think a rewrite of winforms and a ide to go along with it for C++, VB.net C# and F# would bring a lot of people over.
Not to mention .net 5 is going open source and cross platform.

No. This project is about an open source operating system and not a general rewrite of all Microsoft products. Just because a product can run on windows does not make it an intrinsic part of Windows itself.

Note there are already plenty of alternatives editors that programmers can use but rewriting the whole IDE and environment? I think you underestimate the amount of work involved. It is a task that is probably the size of the the o/s itself.

There will be nothing stopping you from creating such a project and writing an open source version of Visual Studio in your spare time but these proposals are beyond the scope of ReactOS.

Re: .NET programs.The intention is that they will all run on ReactOS. VisualStudio will eventually run on ReactOS, earlier versions probably do already.

well I wasn't talking about rewriting .net just an ide and possibly a gui framework that works with it.
I will look into writing a ide

Thats what @dizt3mp3r was talking about too. There is no need to rewrite .net as there is Mono doing that. He meant recreating an IDE is a massive task we are not planning to do or think it's of any use at all. There are DOZENS of free IDEs for almost any language and we are no Linux ppl who are only happy if they can fork a fork of a fork to change the color of a symbol :P

But... feel free to tinker with it.
ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

hi i don't think there are many oss ides for .net there is MonoDevelop but you need to compile it your self and there was SharpDevelop but the last release was in 2016 there may be code editors but they tend not to have GUI builders

It's not a general rewrite of all Microsoft products.
