I have a couple of solutions with Xamarin projects that I created in Windows.
But I'm about to purchase a Macbook, and so I want to know if I'm going to have to install windows in a VM to continue working on them.
Yes, you can open the solutions created with Visual Studio on Windows also in Visual Studio for Mac. But you can't open an UWP project on the Mac. Everything else like iOS or Android projects are no problems. So you don't need to install Windows in a VM, if you don't need UWP development.
