True Crypt is cross-platform.

The FAQ pointed by the OP does not claim that it does. It gives me the 
impression that it actually alters the disk's partition table. I'm sure 
that the data can't be recovered without the password, but having an 
entry in the disk's partition table makes it distinguishable from random 
data, at least in the context of plausible deniability, which is the 
context that I wrote that comment.
