Yeah, VB.Net is cross platform and the .exe you get should work in Mono
without problems. The difference between using VB.Net and C# is mostly the
fact, as far as I know, that the first uses some additional libraries (that
btw have been implemented in Mono already).

If your application doesn't work, just let us know and fix a bug.
