I suggest you ...

Clearly display the target OS for a given command

For generic commands, nothing would change.

But for an OS-specific command:
- an icon of the OS (or OSs) should be displayed
- a tag named after the OS should be added
- the prompt should change
- the background color of the shell should be different

In short: there should be multiple visual clues helping the user to quickly sort out the different commands.

The prompt alone made some users doubt the validity of http://www.commandlinefu.com/commands/view/691/get-back-to-the-root-directory-of-a-windows-drive-like-c whereas it is a valid command on DOS/Windows.
