Rewriting for Linux?

I have a fairly sizeable application, written in (Borland) C for MSDos, which I think
might be useful if ported across to the XO.
I have no Linux experience whatever, though I'm competent in C -- or at least I was
20 years ago when I wrote the application.
It's entirely self-contained and self-running, but I can already see that I cannot hope
simply to recompile its code into Linux ! ( For one thing, all its display functions
are writtten for 640 x 480 VGA.).
I am currently reading background material in order to teach myself Linux, but what
I would like to know is what software you guys & gals are using to write and
compile your code? Red Hat or what?
If you can advise me, I wouldn't have to try and make a guess at what coding
system to get hold of.
With best wishes,
Dr. M. C. Woodhouse MB, BCh.
