Alternative.....

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.

Hope it Helps!

if you want to run Microsofts Visual Studio on linux

YOU DO NOT
you BUY windows 7
install windows 7
run VS 2012 on WIN7

you spent $499 on VS 2012 so running it on win 7 should not be an issue

MS's VS only builds software for MS windows Operating systems
it has NO SUPPORT for linux software

and ubuntu DOSE already have installed ( and for FREE ) gcc
or
install any of the IDE's in the app store

for QT4 and KDE " qt creator" and "KDevelop "
Eclipse -- a java based IDE for c,c++,java,....
Ajunta -- an ide

You could always try using wine. I suggest play on linux if you try going about this route. Results are not guarenteed of course. I know Office 2010 works with Play on Linux, but I have no clue is visual studio works.

A little aggressive, but this is good advice

Visual Studio only runs in Windows, and only compiles software for Windows...it has no business being on Linux. If you want to compile C code for Linux, use the freely available gcc and any of the numerous C/C++ IDEs for Linux.

you can not run Microsoft's Visual Studio on a Linux OS
it ONLY builds Microsoft programs and ONLY on a Microsoft Operating System
you will NEVER be able to build linux code on MS's Visual studio
