I'd strongly vote in favor of emulation for doing development work with 
visual studio, or nix it and go with REALbasic which is cross-platform 
and has a native compiler for Linux.

The personal edition is free for Linux users last I checked. Doesn't do 
.NET, but it will create native executables for Windows, OS X, and 
Linux, 32 bit.
