The schema.org vocabulary is published in OWL at
http://schema.org/docs/schemaorg.owl. In the past some people reported
some discrepancies with the HTML version, but I'm sure that's something that
can be fixed, if not fixed already. http://schema.rdfs.org/ also has several
RDF oriented tools and documentations.

Could you be more precise about what you think is not compatible with RDF
and Linked Data?

It's up to publishers to use the schema.org vocabulary when publishing their
data as RDF (in whatever syntax they use). As it is, the schema itself is
not tied to any syntax, we use it in Drupal for example to publish data in
RDFa, index it in a triple store and run SPARQL queries against it.
