I regularly use Mac, Windows, and Linux. According to the wiki, any backup files become unsafe to use after 100 new transactions. Barring that, where is my wallet stored? I imagine C:\Users\<name>\AppData\Local\Bitcoin for Windows and ~/.bitcoin for Mac/Linux, but I'm not sure.

If I drag and drop my wallet from one OS to another, will the Bitcoin app recognize it, or is the wallet stored in a per-OS format?

Try searching your hard drive for wallet.dat. That'll turn up your wallet file on any OS. Finally, as far as I know wallet files are completely OS independent. I can't see any reason why they wouldn't be.
