Contrary to popular belief, Linux is not a operating system. It is the kernel that is used as the base of an operating system. While Linux is mostly used on servers, it can be used on a desktop but it will likely never be able to replace Windows.

You're lucky, Ubuntu can read the data. Just copy the data over to the hard drive, then format the SD in win7- fat32 would be perfectly fine. After that copy the data over to the win7 computer.
