Don't worry about that, so long as it runs on Linux and you can share source code to some Pandora expert we can help with the porting. Should be pretty simple, like: run make, and adjust some default key bindings / settings.
I put a bit of money for this, seems like a good project and like to encourage starting-out indie dev.
I wish I could quit my job and do game dev full time! but I can't take a risk on that right now.
