Utility of a Open Source VB.NET compiler ?!

What is the utility of having a VB.NET compiler in the Open Source world ? Is it something that is good to have or is it something that is a must have ? What would be the 'scenario' like when the mono community is ready with a fully working and reliable VB.NET compiler ?

These questions constantly pound me as I work on new patches for the BMCS ...

Some people like Visual Basic, AND the .NET platform. Its a two'fer!

Unfortunately, Visual Basic.NET used to be tied to Visual Studio. With SharpDevelop, now its not.

But it is *still* tied to Windows, unfortunately.

But with MonoDevelop and a VB.NET compiler...

A lot of existing systems such as DotNetNuke, lots of leagacy software, and even some who prefer (yes prefer) to code in VB still. I would say the greatest use is on ASP.NET stuff as many sites came from or are comming from older ASP code as VB.NET is the language of choice for many companies porting since its similar to VB in lots of ways. You won't believe how many times VB.NET is a requirement because that was the route choosen since it was a natural progressing for many VB programmers. Its all good :-)

I want to see DotNetNuke running under Mono on Linux

Therefore I appreciate your efforts in developing a Open Source VB.NET compiler very much.

Keep up the good work!
