[mono-vb] VB.net Not work right out of the box?

The mono class status page (http://go-mono.com/status/) seems to indicate
that there is no Microsoft.VisualBasic assembly in the 4.0 profile. You can
try to use the assembly from another profile, but yes some incompatibilities
may arise, if MS changed things for 4.0 (I think they have).

Over the years, very few people showed interest in VB support in Mono, and
so it currently has (AFAIK) no core devs assigned to it, and very few
contributors helping to improve the situation. Contributions to make VB
better supported are welcome, but the time commitment needed is high to make
things work well for the latest VB.

I personally would recommend to use C#, or some of the better supported
languages like F# and Boo (See Visual Boo extension for VS2010, or the Boo
addin for MonoDevelop).
