I develop on Windows and deploy on *nix.

PHP is happy to use "/" on Windows for directories.  Use PATH_SEPARATOR 
for include_path settings.

Use Unix line endings for everything.

It's rare to need a $_SERVER value that isn't the same on all platforms.  
Let alone, Apache runs on Windows, so that's what I run in my dev
