I would like to know if I can export / copy my Ubuntu (live usb) bitcoin client, wallet, and block chain, into a Windows PC.

Is it possible?

I'm pretty sure they are all compatible although I only have experience for copying my personal wallet.dat file. That works every time.

Personally I delete my wallet.dat file every time I log of my computer and store it on a usb stick(Quick tip from Xenland Smiley

I don't think that's possible.  My wallet data file is 100 KB, while the block data files are 343 MB and 155 MB, for a total of 498 MB.

Yes, you can.

I use to input the blockchain from my windows desktop to my linux boxes (so I don't have to go dload it again by p2p) and never had issues.
Just that normally I don't pass the wallet.dat along, but I believe it's ok also.

I can confirm that I did it. It worked for me, but in reverse. I placed my windows' full block chain (two blk*.dat files) into my linux .bitcoin folder.  The block chain on linux was previously 134229 and it was then 134865 instantly.
