Python is portable. Code written under Linux should work
under Windows (or most other platforms) and vice versa,
*unless* you use platform-specific code. In some cases,
this can be fixed relatively easily, e.g. by converting
Linux pathnames to Windows. In other cases, it's not
so easy, like when using a package that exists on
platform X but not on Y. It all depends on the situation.
