I have linux at home and windows at work and I occasionally move a lyx file from
one to the other.  It is perfectly straightforward.  The key gotchas I can
recall are these and they are not serious:

- the lyx versions must be identical.

- if there are any special modules, both must be present in both places.

- the file might well look a little different in lyx on Windows and Linux.  This
  is not a real problem for me but might be if your colleague is not co-located
  with you.

- My Acrobat Reader on Windows is anti-social about closing the file. I always
  have to approve closing the existing version when I compile a new version.
