I'd have to say that's a dicey thing to do on other OSs, as well.
Windows included.

Macs do a nice trick. Aside from upgrading the same machine, if you buy a new Mac can connect your old one via firewire, boot it as a firewire target (they all do that) and it will migrate all your old settings (users/passwords etc.) and programs over. A new Intel Mac will even migrate older PPC programs over and continue to run them. That's a tough act to follow.
