Lina said its dual-licensed Lina virtual Linux machine will run more or less normal Linux applications under Windows, Mac, or Linux, with a look and feel native to each."

Shouldn't the other way around be better? I mean, writing a VM where you could compile Windows apps and then run them in Linux or Mac?


Yes, that would certainly be better. However, I doubt it would be feasible, or even possible. Microsoft obviously doesn't like the idea of Windows apps running on other platforms, so I'm sure they would be less than willing to provide the necessary documentation.
