http://www.minion.de/ has patches to make various drivers work, I've had success with them so far...
I see two paths
I think there're two big directions the interoperability thing can go. Either the different underlaying components will become identical to the application (porting vb to linux, perfecting wine, etc) or the overlaying layer will migrate to a compatible form (cross platform api's, migration in windos land from vb to ruby or something). The big distinction is do we try to 'fix' things on the aggressor side or the defender side? We can either add support for crappy software on linux or support for good software (portable) on windows. I personally think the evolution of gtk+ for windows and the mass adoption of SDL by windows developers a more significant step than vb on linux (but it is good to have a two pronged attack, ms may get scared and start 'innovating' obfuscated routines to fail on cross platform solutions).
