Hi dandeliondream, what exactly do you want to know?

Linux and Windows are entirely two different operating systems. They have different architectures. You can't run an application written for Windows on Linux, and vice versa. (There are some emulators which make it possible, but they don't work for all applications)

But you can run both, Windows and Linux, on the same computer.
