that might be a bit hard

obs has a pidgen plugin

Did you bother to even TRY to look this up??? Putting "how to install whatsapp on pc" into Google gives you tutorials and step-by-step guides....did you try doing that?
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...whatsapp&hl=en
http://www.techswatch.com/2013/10/ho...-tutorial.html

...among MANY others. And since the app DOES NOT RUN on Windows XP or openSUSE, but is for MOBILE PHONES, it may not work at all, won't be supported, and may be against the installation EULA.
