No, it's not a stupid question, it's a smart question that has a stupid answer 
because of the differences between the filesystems in question.

One thing to keep in mind: Windows only reads FAT-based or NTFS filesystems.  
If you're just trying to keep your files from Windows when you move to Linux, 
move the files you want to keep in My Documents on the Windows box, then just 
move that off to other media.

Ob-OS-comparison: Why is it MS thought the registry was a good idea for 
handling multiple user configs, when even history up to that point 
demonstrated otherwise?
