    You can write it, of course, and just compile the source in Linux. You understand how C++ works, right, and what source is and whatnot?

    Humm, visual C++ and Linux ?
    I think you mean "C" not Visual C++, the visual program languages are for windowz.

    As Jehnx said, you can write and test your program within the Visual C++ environment, but you'll have to compile it in Linux to make sure it works. Also, make sure that you don't use proprietary Win32 applications. There are compiler-specific commands for C++ (especially within the MS Visual world), and if you use any of those, you will get errors within Linux. For compiling in any *nix environment, I have had the best results using g++. It seems to be more compatible with Visual C++ than other compilers I've tested.

    gcc is the norm, and I would recommend it. Most (if not all) distros have it, and if you want, you can try KDevelop IDE which looks something to what you are used to.

    KDevelop Home: http://www.kdevelop.org/
    gcc Home: http://gcc.gnu.org/

    Hope this helps

    You can copy the most of same code (of course without Win functions) but you have to create a new GUI on Linux. With Glide3 or something like that. You must use QT or GTK+ API.

    I think so .
