Import Oracle data pump dump files from Oracle on Linux to Oracle for Windows

I had this question after viewing Oracle db import/export from linux to windows.

I have been given a set of .DMP files.  I have only a few logs which provide me with a few schema names but I cannot be sure I have all of them.
I need to import the dump files and then export them as delimited files so that I can import them to SQL Server on Windows.
My question is, is there a way to import .DMP files directly to SQL Server?  Everything I've read says no.
If not, can I download Oracle software for Windows and import the files to a new database even though the export files are from a Linux OS?

I've not seen any tools that will parse an Oracle DMP file and insert the data into a different database.

There should be no problem with this.  You need to pay attention to the Oracle version that performed the export and make sure the version you install will process the import.

If the Oracle database software version you install is equal to or higher than the Oracle database version the export is from, it will be able to process the exported files.

But this may be a lot of work, especially if you have never installed an Oracle database before.

If you have a connection of some kind (friend, business partner, etc.) that already has an Oracle database with the version you need, it may be much faster to send these files to that person/organization and ask or pay him/her/them to do the conversion to ASCII files for you.

Thank you for confirmation.  Because of space limitations I have to install from scratch.
