Default VB.NET On Other Platforms

I need to know if anyone out there knows if there is a way to build a VB.NET 2005 application so that it will run on LINUX, UNIX, MAC OS. If anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it, this is time sensitive.

Thanks, Mike

The entirety of the issue is the support files for the platforms you mentioned.
The concept of .NET is that the program you write does not have instruction in it that are specific to anything. The Common Language Runtime is just that: common.

Though I don't know what .NET support MS has created, that is nonetheless where your search should focus.

You build the app the same way, irrespective of the target.
