To understand what you're asking: A compiler takes the human readable source code that you (or someone else) creates and converts it into operating system specific, platform specific binary.

Linux does include a C++ compiler. However, Delphi is Borland which only runs on Windows (well, there's Kylix I guess). Visual Basic is a Microsoft language for which I suppose you could (theoretically) create a compiler for under Linux, but you'd probably get into trouble if you tried to distribute it.

If you're looking for something similar to run under Linux, try the qt3 designer, Glade Interface designer, KDevelop Designer or one of the other 50,000 IDEs out there for Linux.

If you're looking to run the actual Windows IDEs under Linux, try WINE or VMware.
