I did make a port to Delphi for Linux (Kylix) a few years ago. The problem wasn't with the visual elements, but with threading and other low level stuff. Things like copying which work in a background thread were randomly hanging the program, and I couldn't find out the reason of this. So in the end I had to give up the Linux version, sorry.

If you can live without the GUI, Midnight Commander is pretty good in what it does.
