Mono Project Windows developers can now port Visual Basic applications to Linux without modifying their code, using an open source project backed by Novell. The Mono project has built a compiler that lets developers code using Visual Basic inside Visual Studio or other preferred tools environments and run the Visual Basic code on non-Windows platforms without the time and cost of modification.

Misleading Title

The title doesn't specify .Net but there are other variants of Visual Basic out there and in use which have nothing to do with .Net or even share the exact same syntax (<=VB6, VBA). I guess when mono is mentioned it sort of gives it away, though still misleading at first glance.
