I call this cross-platform compatibility. Although if that program is written in a compiled language, then it will need to be recompiled from source code on the other computer. Languages like Java and Python (JIT'd for a virtual machine or interpreted) are usually natively cross-platform compatible. Usually C/C++ can be cross-platform compatible if the programmer is willing to do this, however many don't and usually means either the program is Windows only, Linux only, Mac only, etc. This is called platform dependent.
