We have a linux based database system. I want to switch to MySQL. But are these databases natively supported by the MySQL?

If not, which plugins would I need to support them?

Well, Linux databases are workable with Windows MySQL servers if that is what you would like to know. Please take note though that there are several vendors distributing RPMs, and they differ in capabilities, conventions, and even features. Also, you must install the latest version of MySQL and have it upgraded to the latest version available. To download mySQL, just go to mysql.com. Now, it is important that you download the community edition of MySQL to know the right Linux platform that will be compatible with it.
