Linqpad for Mac Please,
I work with xamarin, but i only have xamarin Indie license, that means i work with xamarin studio for mac. I can't afford for business license. So switching back to windows and mac just to use linqpad in windows is a bit annoying and the data that i need to "LINQ" all in Mac.
Switched from a Windows machine to MacOS and really miss LinqPad... also had the paid version and was a daily used tool. Would be great if there was a MacOS version available.

I'm planning to buy MacBook, the only thing that holds me is the lack of a LinqPad. And for those who said in comments that .net core is multiplatform so why LP isn't? Sure the .net core can be run on Mac. But lp is using WPF which is windows only and can't be used anywhere else. Rewriting UI for other platforms is a huge time investment. I'm afraid that JA doesn't have the resources to do that. Porting it to the electron would be nice. Maybe crowdfunding will help? :)
after .net core and VS Code being available on mac, linqpad is the only reason I'm still on windows !!!
I have been a paid user of LINQPad since pretty much the beginning. I have bought licenses for 3 co-workers, a 2nd license for myself and had 3 employers now purchase the enterprise license. This tool is invaluable for me and I would happily pay again for a mac version knowing that the effort to port it would be significant.

I work from home on a MacBook doing Xamarin Forms, I remote to a Windows machine for rare tasks. The main reason I've never purchased LinqPad is I can't use it on a Mac.
+All the votes. Would be a wonderful.

Yep me, too.
I've switched to Mac for Xamarin coding, and I miss Linqpad
While Xamarin has "Xamarin Workbooks" for playing around, it just isn't doesn't work as well, isn't as productive and doesn't have the same database connectivity as Linqpad.

I understand that LINQPad 6 runs on .NET Core, but only on Windows...
If you combine the following three related requests, support for macOS will become the top-requested feature:

I would love to have LinqPad for on my Mac. Now I've to start my vm-windows machine to use it...
Christ yes. What's the holdup? Isn't .NET cross platform?
David Poulin commented
definitively yes. i am working on mac, using .net core and would love to have linqpad on mac too
yes please! Trying to convince a bunch of RoR devs that use Macs to try C#/.Net core. Having LinqPAD to play with will help a lot.
Definitely guys, please! No problem to pay. We have many people in the company that would love it

Do you think this will happen any time soon?
I second it. I would like that to!
YES THIS. And if you can´t support .NET Framework in macOS, just do it with .NET Core; that'd be more than good to have. I'd definitely pay for a macOS native version.
