Question Unix to LINUX

quick question that may bring long answers Smilie
I am currently looking into porting an existing Recital system from Unix to Linux. possibly not a good idea Smilie Basically;
Would i be better shooting myself in the foot now? or
do you know if there would be a fair expense due to buying Linux and the necessary REcital programs?
Is it true that I will have to recompile all the code under Recital Linux in order to run it?
Does Linux 'work' in a similar way to Unix with File Systems, and Logical Volumes?

Any advice would be welcome, including 'dont do it!' Smilie
cheers all
Kuz
