A how-to guide for porting VB apps to Linux & Mac OS

Gwen writes "

Save some cycles - A new white paper is available that provides tips and tricks on how to port Visual Basic apps to Linux and Mac OS X. Written by long-time VB expert Hank Marquis, the article provides the finer points on how to get cross-platform faster."

For porting our VB projects, we will use REALbasic 5.5.3 for Windows, a modern software development environment that is quite similar to Microsoft Visual Basic® in terms of the GUI and syntax. I also don't intend to provide a full comparison of Visual Basic and REALbasic but rather to show you where they are different in ways that will impact porting your project.
