scribus should not care if you're opening your file with os x or windows 
(or linux for the matter).

but if you don't file > collect for output your .sla before moving it to 
another computer (or another path on the same computer) scribus won't 
find the linked pictures anymore.

so: if the pc really can't open the file modified on the mac, you should 
upload your file to http://bugs.scribus.net (you can mark it as private 
to let only the devs read it).

if the file opens, but the pictures are missing, well, you know what you 
have to do!
