Will there ever be a Paint.NET release for MacIntosh?

Had you read the FAQ:


(1) Will it ever be ported to Mac OS, GNU/Linux, or any other operating system?

(2) What about Mono support? Wouldn't that be really easy?

We will not be doing any work to directly support Mac OS, Linux, Mono, or any other platform. We are doing this in order to focus on the best quality and support for the platform that we develop on: Windows with .NET. Also, we simply do not have the resources or expertise to do any of this work.


edit: also this tutorial points to using virtual machine to run paint.net within Mac.

Thank you, and sorry, i didnt read the FAQ, it didn't even come to mind 😅

No worries. My advice, if you are serious about sticking with Mac, is to make sure you have a very generous RAM. My last go-around with Parallel caused systematic slow down of the Mac to the point everything came to a crawl, and I finally had to return to PC. I think Parallel is better in that it will handle the licensing, a big issue for Windows, and ease of installation of programs.
