IBM's OS and Linux


Can someone help me come up with logical and reasonable reasons why C programs developed and written for the IBM environment can not be ported directly to the Linux environment. In the IBM world there a C like compiler called Metal C, it permits C code to be intermixed with HLASM (assembly language) and compiled as one module. The problem is that there is a very sophisticated module written in HLASM that needs to be ported to the Linux environment without changing the module, just take the resultant z/os executable and make it work in the Linux world.

Please Help
