The Mono Project announced yesterday that it has developed a Visual Basic compiler that will enable software developers who use Microsoft Visual Basic to run their applications on any platform that supports Mono, such as Linux, without any code modifications.

Visual Basic .NET support in Mono is relatively new. The Visual Basic runtime has been available for Mono for a while, and with the release of Mono 1.2.3, the Visual Basic support will be complete, with the introduction of a self-hosting compiler and class libraries for Visual Basic development on any of the Mono supported systems.
