Yes, but... be aware that UNIX-specific things can cause trouble:
* Fonts are not treated or named the same way on UNIX as in Windows.
  You must make sure to have exactly rhe same fonts installed, and
  be prepared to play with some font mappings in the maker.ini file.
* Image formats are not supported in the same way. Some image formats
  are UNIX-specific and won't work in Windows (and the other way around).
  Some images may display differently, and EPS files may cause gray
  boxes in Windows (for instance if you were using Sun Solaris).

If you encounter problems, you may want to take a look at the
following web pages of mine:
