I've been teaching an online Mathematica course for about six years and have
never had any compatibilty problems between platforms and even between versions
(except of course v3 -> v2).  Roughly 75% of my students use Windows machines
and I use a Mac.  When I've had problems, it has almost always been a problem
with the way file is sent; e. g. old AOL mail was a problem.
