VB on Linux
My idea is if you want to keep Linux free of VB.NET code and still support VB.NET programmers is create a decent IDE(maybe a clone of Microsoft's) that allows debugging and ect. of VB.NET code but convert it to C in the background.Another possiblity is to make the IDE only put out windows executables that can be run in the IDE using something like WINE. This way if a VB.NET programmer finds themselves in a situation where they only have a Linux system available they can load up the IDE and still get work done on their project. This is just a possible comprimise .
