Enabling VB .NET with Linux or Unix

Let's say I develop an application using VB .NET IDE on a Windows OS. If I want to enable this application for a client who uses Linux or Unix, how do I do so? Do they need to purchase VB .NET? I am totally lost on how this works.
.NET applications do not natively run on Linux or UNIX. However, if you were developing your .NET applications in C#, you could look at recompiling the application with Mono, which is based on C# and CLI ECMA standards.
