A Good PHP Tutorial

And VS.Net's runtime is possible to install (from what I hear), but the actual development environment is not. I would vastly recommend PHP to the beginner, since PHP is practically the standard in server-side scripts these days.

If you don't like PHP, however, look into Ruby, I've heard lots of good things about it, and it might be more to your liking.

Good Luck.

WINE does not run any .NET code now, and probably never will. That is the domain of the Mono project. At some point in the future, it may be possible to transparently switch between wine(win32) and mono(.net) as needed. I don't know the internals of visual studio, but my guess is it's a combo of old win32 code and new .NET code.

So you can try running VS.NET on mono on linux. But given that VS.NET is very sensitive to even the particular version of the microsoft .net runtime, I would say it's unlikely it will run well if at all on mono.

Well, as long as the .NET runtimes shipped by Microsoft are layered on top of regular Win32 API calls WINE should run with the MS runtimes (in theory) - whether it will work it another matter. Lots of games I have don't work on WINE, but then lots of them don't work on current Windows versions either.
