Question Linux folders/things transfered to Microsoft


Hey, thanks for looking? I am wondering if it is possible for linux applications, or files like screensavers or desktops are able to be transfered to Windows. There must be a way. I am a fresh Linux user in an IT class in Seward, Alaska. Since we all share State bandwith, it is impossible to download screensavers, desktops, and other things that are groovy that would be nice to have on Windows since we switch between Linux and Windows constantly. Thanks again for your time and would really appreciate an answer. Have a nice Day!

Linux applications will not run: they expect a different operating environment than Windows provides. (Most Windows applications can run on Linux with Wine.)

Screen-savers are "applications."

Artwork, graphics files, and so-on are generally platform-independent.
