    This is going to be impossible to answer, there are opinions in many directions. You need to provide more information, your question doesn't even make coherent sense. Please specify! – RSX-1327 Oct 17 '12 at 16:17

The closest free alternative to visual basic for Linux would be Gambas Basic. It is similar to visual basic but there is some differences, and you can't just copy and paste in VB code, if you want to see the differences you can see them at http://gambasdoc.org/help/doc/diffvb?show. Another thing that you could try is to run visual basic and the applications that you programmed in the Wine emulator under Linux.

If you are wanting to continues using Linux, just like Mfillpot said, yes you should learn python or bash.

I hope this helps.
