Yes, well, generally yes. The file format of the database is the native
format for the platform, meaning that the database follows the
alignment, data type, and endian rules for the machine and operating
system. Linux on Intel and Windows are identical in those areas, so the
databases can be copied. If you run Linux on a non-Intel machine, then
the rules change.
