Sessions do, not certain about catalogs.

Yes, the catalogue file itself will open in Windows and MacOS. There are some problems however when moving and/or renaming folders in the catalogue folder tree though if you move the catalogue between platforms: images contained within such a renamed or moved folder will often disappear when opening the catalogue on the other OS, i.e. the folder will show up empty, also after re-linking.
A workaround to this, is to never rename or move catalogue folders in CO1, but export the folder content as a seperate catalogue, then remove folder with images from the CO1 catalogue, and rename the folder outside of CO1, and then add the folder to the catalogue folder tree again, re-import the images from the exported catalogue, and drag them back into the renamed folder.
Quite a workaround, but this is a known bug with Phase One: I reported it myself :?: and they acknowledged the bug.
Whether it will ever be fixed though, is another story I guess ....
