While the idea isn't new, there's new evidence to support the notion that Microsoft may support Linux with .NET: apparently the second beta of Visual Studio .NET supports Linux as a target platform. This article doesn't indicate that Visual Studio .NET itself is being ported to Linux: rather that there may be a Linux .NET runtime out there somewhere against which software can be built using the Visual Studio .NET tools.
Microsoft denies the whole thing.
The developer who discovered the possibility said:
"I found a list of the target operating systems to be supported in .Net in that beta. The list includes Linux (kbLinux), Unix (kbUnix), Macintosh (kbMacintosh), Windows and Windows CE," said Rob Scoble, an editor at Fawcette Technical Publications in Palo Alto, Calif. and a beta tester.
