I currently use the Zend library, since I find it easier to install. SVN

I test code on a windows box, and release it onto a linux box, so yes.

However, your choice of library will be determined by the language you 
code in.

The Zend libraries support PDO-based repositories, so that can be either 
SQLite or MySQL (or any other db supported by your PHP PDO driver selection)
