no, it can't you can get free compilers. It doesn't have the libraries making this feat impossible. Just use a free windows compiler.

Sure you can. Install mingw32 (http://www.mingw.org/) for gcc and you can compile windows executables.

Yes. Mingw can be compiled to run on Linux as a cross-compiler (http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8&rls=GGLD,GGLD:2004-38,GGLD:en&q=mingw+cross%2Dcompiler).
