Starting with Mathematica 10, .mx files are only restricted by 'bitness', i.e. an .mx file generated on a 64 bit machine should be interchangeable between all 64 bit platforms (Windows-x86-64, OSX-x86-64, Linux-x86-64).

Many of these functions are next to impossible to implement in a compatible way, think e.g. Integrate. Mathematica is also very different from most other languages: it is based on term rewriting and operates with symbols (concepts not ...
