Can someone please give me step by step help on installing Visual Studio on Linux(Mandriva). I'm kind of new with Linux and will appreciate any help.

Thanks in advance!

Seems like it can be done - there was a few links, like, that offers some hope - my 5

Never tried but information is very interesting. My 5.
Taking into account you can use Mono and build Windows applications for Windows .NET, they will run on Linux without recompilation... One can develop, say, Forms applications (which are evil, of course, but...), as MonoDevelop does not have Designer for Forms...

I think you would be much better off with MonoDevelop, see[^].

Oh, I know! Thank you! By working in US I developed stable hatred to abbreviations... Who knows what I'm talking about will understand...

OK, you cannot *directly* run Visual Studio on Linux. So you'll need some sort of virtualization software. If your end goal is to develop Linux apps on a Linux machine using Visual Studio, I would suggest these steps:
1. Download and install VirtualBox.
2. Install Windows inside VirtualBox and install guest extensions on it.
3. Install Visual Studio inside VirtualBox.
4. Install GCC and GDB on your Linux machine.
5. Install VisualGDB inside VirtualBox and follow this tutorial to make a simple Linux app from Visual Studio.
