Hi Kevin,
You don't need a linux system to develop with mono in mono. A windows
system is absolutely fine. 
(Only if you want to compile the source code of mono, you'll need the
free CygWin tools from )
The Visual Basic part in Mono is separated in two main projects:
1. The BASIC compiler
2. The class libraries (the classes in namespace Microsoft.VisualBasic)
Since you're an application developer, it might make sense to run and
test your applications in the mono framework. 
A first thing might be to execute your existing application on mono.
When you find bugs, you're welcome to report them at
There is a website available which shows the missing parts in
If you like to work with the latest source code, it is available via
SVN. Here is a guide to get it:
In case of any further questions please don't hesitate to contact me.
