All software should be compatible across ALL linux, but there are some distributions that will run the software better than others. Linpus is not a mainstream distribution, debian ubuntu slackware etc... are a better choice. go to for a better idea.

Windows software can't be run straight off linux, you will need to use a windows emulator ( to run windows software.
