Ich you want to stay system independent, there is linpopup as a pendant
to winpopup. You can talk to it, as described by Gavin, using smbclient:

Package: linpopup
Description: X Window System port of Winpopup, running over Samba
 This allows a linux system to communicate with a windows computer that
 runs Winpopup, sending or receiving message.  It also provides an
 alternative way to communicate between Linux computers that run Samba.
 Note that LinPopUp is not only a port, as it includes several enhanced

Another portable option would be xipmsg:

Package: xipmsg
Description: A pop up style message communication software
 IP Messenger is a pop up style message communication software
 for multi platforms. It is based on TCP/IP(UDP).
 Xipmsg is the X11 version of IP Messenger. It can communicate
 with IP Messengers for Windows/MacOS.
