Is this Linux XP operating system compatable??

I have windows Xp and it's not compatable for some reason so I need a new operating system(I don't want to discuss this aspect).


I have a Ron Paul video I made that I need to put on a DVD for a group of people who don't have computers. So I need to turn it from an .FLV file into an mpeg format via windows Media Coder.

Is this OS called Linux XP compatable with Media Coder?

I think it uses firefox as a browser. Also will it be compatable with other microsoft products or will it be a pain in the butt to deal with?

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you. :)

its really not about windows and linux... its about formats and specific applications.
i have osX and I have found an application that will load wmv files and I can export to mpeg or avi, im willing to bet theres also a way to do that in linux. Also I'm pretty sure your windows XP setup just needs a codec and/or the right application to make it work there.
