LR conversion question

I'm currently on a Windows based PC and am considering moving to an iMac. I also use LR (an OLD version of 2.2) for my post and was holding off upgrading until I figured out where I was headed in platform choice.

How would a move from a PC to a Mac affect my LR catalogs?
Is there a conversion done for this or do the catalogs work cross-platform?
Changing platforms will also probably involve different directory structures. Can you 're-point' to the catalogs new location?

Any input would be appreciated.

BTW - I looked at the iMac 27" today with a fusion drive and expanded memory. Wow. Just wow.

    It's fully cross platform in terms of the data. If you had your LR catalog, previews, images etc on an external drive, you could hook it up to either a Mac or Windows machine and have access to your images and database, assuming each machine had the same version of LR.
