     Is Linux compatable with anything?  Unix?  Xenix?  386BSD?  Even
close?

Paranoid about switching platforms....

Completely uncompatible with Unix.  It is a CP/M clone.

:-)

No, actually it is a Unix clone.  It is fairly compatible with both
SYSV, BSD, and POSIX, and getting better (somebody finds a bug or
incompatibility, and it will often be fixed in the next release).
