[gdal-dev] Batch conversion ECW to TIFF

Hi GDALers,

I need to convert ECW files to GeoTIFF (and not the other way round).
I have 20 or so files now, but will be getting >1000 of them, so batch 
must be the way to go.

I would prefer a linux solution, but I see that the "free" Erdas SDK is 
only for windows.
On my Win7 (64 bit) box I only have Qt 4.7.4 (32 bit) [built Jan 26 2012 
version]. The Qt Creator version is 2.4.1

I have minimal experience with Qt so my question is is:

What is my best way forward?
Is there a Linux command line solution?

Thanks in advance,
