Page rendering across browsers/platforms

I run Windows XP and I use Firefox 2.2.4 as my default browser.  I work part-time as a Web Developer.

I try my best to fit all browsers and I test my sites in IE6, IE7, Safari, Firefox, Opera and Netscape (All windows versions.)

I don't have a Mac or Linux machine to test these browser on other platforms.

My question is:

Does Opera, Netscape, Firefox render the page on a Linux platform differently from a Windows Platform if using the same border?

You can extend the time available to generate screenshots.  Occasionally I have to do that.

I think this is a distributed network, so it relies upon people being online at the time you make the request and the number of people ahead of you in the queue.

I just sent it to one of my pages a few minutes ago and I already have:

Firefox 2.0.0.6
Ubuntu 7.04
Firefox 1.5.0.12
Ubuntu 6.06
Konqueror 3.5
Opera 9.23

from Linux returned...
