I wouldn't touch Windows with a barge pole so can't really give an
definitive answer.

A few Windows using people have had problems playing back some of the
files i create, but getting the latest DivX5 codec has always worked

Although i always recommend to them to ditch the DivX codecs and use
ffDshow (http://sourceforge.net/projects/ffdshow).  It seems to work for
everyone i've recommended it to, and much better than the DivX codecs

Hope this helps somewhat.
