Mono framework and Android Legacy in Visual Studio 2022 for Mac

Good evening,

I own a MacBook Pro with M1 chip. Why when I install Android Legacy tools in Visual Studio for Mac 2022, it install also Mono Framework ? What means legacy for Android Xamarin ? Does it affect functionality of Visual Studio for Native Mac M1 ? I noticed that Xamarin Profiler appears as Intel Platform.

Sincerely yours,
Claudiu Alex

If you install Xamarin function in the vs installer, it will install mono framework. please see this document:https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/xamarin/get-started/what-is-xamarin#xamarinandroid

Xamarin.Android applications run within the Mono execution environment, side by side with the Android Runtime (ART) virtual machine. Xamarin provides .NET bindings to the Android. and Java. namespaces. >The Mono execution environment calls into these namespaces via Managed Callable Wrappers (MCW) and provides Android Callable Wrappers (ACW) to the ART, allowing both environments to invoke code in >each other.
