no, most of the time, you don't have to reinstall linux.
however, there are still some cases you should be careful.
1)the cpu type is different, you cannot use a x86 linux on armv7
2)when the new board is too new, some features may not be functional.
3)if your linux is booted by /dev/sdXX, you need to make sure the hard drive is still /dev/sdXX
4)your video card may be different, but xorg will take care of it, just don't be panic.

我遇過你類似CASE, 我之前舊電腦出問題, 買番部新機(唔要HARD DISK果種), 買左番黎, 只是將舊HARD DISK插入新電腦就可以用, 唔洗重裝linux。 新機的底板系ASUS H81M-E。舊機底板系ECS G41T-M。

LINUX 本身係行動 OS,原本潛力無限,只是由於主體仍要 COMMAND 為主....其實我唔知點解會咁,但見呢度D人係咁講.......普及有難度

The reason why you don't need to reinstall Linux because of the Linux Kernel of most distribution have included lots of drivers or auto detect during the startup. So even you replace the system with new hardware, generally speaking the Linux OS would still be able to boot.

But once you go further to start compiling your own Kernel, you'll have a more streamlined kernel based on your specific hardware, then you could still boot up your new PC with LiveCD and then compile a new Kernel again.

Regarding the difference between Windows and Linux/Unix (Why Linux/Unix command based), I think the following article is pretty good talking about the different philosophy behind:
