If you're signing keys with local signatures include
before --import or in each machine's gpg.conf
On the windows box gpg --import pubring.gpg.linux
On the linux box gpg --import pubring.gpg.windows
I'll leave it to you to decide the best way to get each of the public keyring
files copied to the other machine. Just make sure you don't overwrite one of the
files when copying.
BTW, this also works for the secret keyring, secring.gpg.
There is no guarantee that this will continue to work. The keyring storage
format is up to the implementation authors and is subject to change.
The canonical approach is to export, transfer, then import.
