Thanks for your response. All Linux systems come with the GNU C compiler for
free. That's easy to locate -- try 'man gcc' for some docs and of course 'gcc'
to invoke the compiler itself.

Multi-threading -- Linux uses POSIX threads; naturally Microsoft will not be
compatible with that so that portion of the code would need to be different.
That kind of code is pretty technical so that may be enough to make you not want
to port Spike to Linux.

Best of luck with Spike in whatever directions you take it.
