SAS will use CEDA (cross-environment data access) to read/write datasets created on another plattform, resulting in an increased runtime.

Suggest reading the SAS DOC on CEDA...for specifics and limitations.

Under most situation, it can not be except for sas code.
If you want interchange between Windows and Linux , it would be better choice to use
proc cport / proc copy to make a transported file.
