Hello Michel

My name is Alessandro Binhara ...  i m from original monobasic team .
in 2005 we finish a implementation of Vb.NET in mono.  You can look a VNB
compiler too .

On the issue of portability, it is more interesting to use C # to be a
standardized language.
In matter of performance does not make sense, since both the MCS as MBAS
generate IL code, and IL runs directly on Mono in the same way.

What can happen is the C # compiler to be much more optimized than
VB.NETto generate IL

I am copying you for Rafael Teixeira who is the creator of monobasic, and
to alexandre marcondes which was also one of the leaders of the Project.
I believe they can give you more details of how this project currently

If you need some professional support, I have a company in Brazil
Speciallized in mono.
