Keeping different platforms in sync?

We're currently using cvs and I have to investigate how we can
best keep our source code in sync on both the platforms used by the

We develop for Windows and Linux and both systems share source code from

the same repository. Our developers would like to be able to do the

  1) Write code on windows machine. Compile and test.
  2) Compile and test the same code on a linux box
  3) Commit changes to cvs

This would be easy to do if the developers committed the source in
stages 1 and 2, but they don't want to do that as it is a busy tree and
would break
others' builds.

Possibilities I have thought of are:

1) Storing checked out copies of the source on a personal samba mount
    on both hosts - But would the conversion of ascii characters etc
screw things up?
2) Everyone has a personal branch of the main trunk which is up to them
to synchronise
    with the main trunk. This would then allow them to commit their
source, test compile,
    change to the other platform, run cvs update and then run a test
compile. But, this
    seems hellishly over complicated...
