What do you mean by "both platforms"? Python scripts already run on
three major operating systems (Win/Lin/Mac) and a good number of
less-popular OSes; a well-written Python script will run in four major
Pythons (CPython, PyPy, Jython, IronPython) and a number of others;
and all manner of CPU architectures and so on.
