Can Visual Basic work on a linux operating system?

I have read in a few books that the .NET framework can work on different
platforms also know as cross platforming, but I can't find anything on a
Microsoft website confirming this. It seems if this were true, I wouldn't
have to research this very hard. You'd think Microsoft would advertise this.

Microosft doesn't directly support running on Linux (for obvious
reasons), but see http://www.mono-project.com for an alternative CLI
implementaton that does.
