Problems going from Mac to Windows

Am thinking of getting myself a mini notebook running XP or Vista. I currently use Calibre on my iMac.
Are there any known problems transferring the files from one OS to the other?

I have done windows to mac to thumb drive and have not had any problems.
I put the entire ebook directory on a thumb drive.
Install and run calibre on the netbook and designate your ebook directory. Exit calibre and copy the directory from your thumb drive into the directory on the netbook and next time you start calibre it will all be there..

No problem at all ; I've been running Calibre on both Mac 10.5.6 and Windows XP SP3, syncing the library folder with the free and excellent Dropbox for more than one month...
