Depends.  If your apps use C++, and you need to be able to
access non-COM C++ DLLs compiled by other folks, I bet
the best way to go is just run the same development tools
you used on Win2k under Wine.
You might be able to just run the Visual C++ setup under Wine
and get the IDE running.  Or if the commandline is enough for you,
see for how I used to set that up.

Or, if you can get away with using Mingw instead of Microsoft's compiler,
for info about how to set up a mingw cross-compiler.
