If you're not fully up to speed with Linux, you could do a lot worse
than hiring a few days consultation from somebody local who is.
If most of your non-billing information is in a common format, e.g. MS
Office and doesn't use fancy tricks, such as VBA macros, it should be
immediately accessible from Open Office/Libre Office - at least that's
my experience. Same goes for web pages, especially if they're written in
HTML and PHP.
Your billing software may be easy if there's a native Linux port, it
works under Wine, or if its sitting on a database using a schema that's
easily ported to one of the native Linux databases (PostgreSQL, MySQL,
Oracle - the first may be easiest). It looks to me that the billing
system authors may be your first port of call there.
