Data Migration

I am sick of Microsoft and would like to switch to Linux.

I have roughly 1 - 2tb of data - primarily PDFs, .AVI video files and .odf Open Office documents and spreadsheets.

How do I get the data from my Windows box to my new Notebook with Linux.


1) This amount of data is too much for DVD transfer.

2) I thought I would be able to do this with a flash drive,   but none that I see are compatible with both Linux AND Windows

3)  ditto for web storage sites?

So how do I get my data from Windows to a new Linux box?
