So If i create a new wallet on an ubuntu Live Cd using the Bitcoin-qt client.

Is that wallet.dat file compatible with windows?

Affirmative.

The wallet.dat file is universal, your OS doesn't have anything to do with it Wink

Thank you for this information, it's very interesting because I've heart that there are some people who try to steal your BTC.

Newbie question after also reading this thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=165117.0

1. Using the main Qt client,  I created and backed up a wallet.dat with 10 receiving addresses to USB A & B.  One of the addresses is receiving coins from mining if it makes a difference.
2. I need to send a few coins
3. I load up USB-A from cold storage and send the coin
4. Do I now need to re-backup the wallet.dat onto USB-B also because of change addresses?

So you store the OS and browsers and your wallet on a flash drive?

The bitcoin client that you installed in the safe environment doesn't need to run in order for you to receive a transaction. That the beauty of this way of securing your coins. It's enough that the network is confirming the transaction for you :-)
