Music composition programs

I am shortly going to purchase the new ASUS eeePC900 which comes with either Linux or XP Home. I prefer the Linux version but am using Music Time, a Windows notation program to connect my MIDI keyboard to the computer and compose music.

Does anyone know if there is a similar program under Linux?
If there is none, would someone know if I can install Windows XP Home on a USB HD and then use Music Time on the Linux computer?

I'd sure appreciate any advice or help in these matters.

Thanks,

For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.
