[Mono-list] vb.net applications on linux

Without knowing anything about vb or vb.net, I see four choices.

1) Compile the application in mono's vb compiler. Might not work
2) Compile the application in windows, move the binary to mono, run it
there.  Might work, might not if it's using stuff that is not
implemented in mono.
3) Rewrite the application until it compiles in mono's vb compiler,
perhaps fix a few bugs in mono's compiler while doing it :)
4) Rewrite the application in c#
