thanks for your help.
You can most likely program in any language. Linux supports many languages. I 'm sure you can use Visual Studio to program in but your probably limited to maybe just C or something like that, but what would be the point to use MS software to develop for Linux ? From my understanding you can program mostly in a plain text editor in Linux and use a Linux or open source compiler to compile your program in Linux.
Just don't be trying to develop Visual Basic or .NET platform for Linux. Maybe you should read up on some programming techniques for Linux. I'm no programmer but I can assure its different compiling for MS compared to Linux or Unix platforms.
