Regarding Delphi: 
TService implements the typical mechanisms of any windows service, it is actually a pretty simple wrapper, since services are pretty simple things. 
The fact that it is compiled under Delphi should not matter at all. 

So if services runs under wine, your service should as well. 
Unless, of course you use some unusual APIs. 


Another thing for you to consider is using Free Pascal instead of Delphi(or both) and try to make the code reasonably portable so that you can run it as a native daemon under *n*x if you want to. 
Non-GUI applications are usually comparatively easy to port and maintain.
