I am not to sure of the state of VB honestly it is still under development.

I am currently working on trying to get Windows.Forms support to be able to
write windows forms apps inside of monodevelop it shouldn't be to hard I
just have a learning curve.

You should be able to run .NET assemblies with mono without a recompile and
vice versa.  To windows forms on linux you need to do something like (with
C#) mcs sourceFile.cs -r:System.Windows.Forms that will let you compile
windows forms.  That should give you a place to start with VB. Sorry I
couldn't be more help.
