Question SCO OpenServer Release 5 migration

I have a SCO OpenServer Release 5 unix box that's coming to the end of it's lifespan. If I replace this with a version of RedHat Enterprise will I have to recompile all my applications for them to run under Red Hat Enterprise?

Conectiva, Suse, or Turbolinux would be better choices since they were partners with SCO until SCO decided to sue everyone over software patents.

United Linux was working toward compatibility and interoperability with their partners software.

I would suggest that you research your options since Conectiva, Suse, and Turbolinux all have enterprise server distributions that are cheaper then Redhat enterprise edition.
