Running VS code on macbook

    I'm considering purchasing Parallels for my Mac because I've found Visual Studio and Rider to be quite cumbersome to use on macOS. I'm accustomed to the smooth experience of Visual Studio on Windows, so I'm contemplating whether 8GB of RAM will suffice for running Visual Studio smoothly for small to medium-sized projects. Additionally, I might occasionally use it for mobile application development, such as using Android Studio for classes. Would 8GB of RAM on the Mac side also be adequate while running Parallels for Visual Studio?

    According to Microsoft, the minimum requirements for running Visual Studio is 4 GB. However, many factors may impact resources used, so they recommend 16 GB RAM for typical professional solutions. You may find more information here.
