A large part of our app is VB.NET code that is compiled
under MS.NET and runs fairly well under Mono.
We're using "Option Strict On" to avoid implicit usage 
of unimplemented parts in Microsoft.VB.CompilerServices
(maybe this works without this option because many
parts are implemented now). We haven't tested mbas yet.

My tip: Compile under MS.NET and try to run your app
on Mono. And don't forget to report bugs...
