    Anyone is going to make an editor for ScriptCS on metro? Maybe finally I can VS on metro like this and make the final switch?

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    What I'm waiting for is LINQPad to output ScriptCS. I know it's not metro, but it's become the tool on all of my machines.

    Hmm, maybe it's obvious ... but why would you want LINQPad to output ScriptCS?

    EDIT:  I've been reading up on ScriptCS some more.  Initially I thought perhaps you would choose either LINQPad or ScriptCS, and why mix the two?  What benefits might you get?  So, reading up a bit, I see that ScriptCS uses Roslyn directly which is a big plus and people have integrated Sublime with ScriptCS.  LINQPad will likely have to evolve to use Roslyn in the future as well, realistically, it seems like the best option for them to add features to LINQPad.  But it seems like it wouldn't be too hard to write an extension for LINQPad that just parses the .linq files and converts it to csx syntax, or vice-versa, in the meantime.
