I dualboot Windows 7 and Ubuntu. Since SpaceChem is one of the few HIB games coming in .deb format, I decided to install it on Ubuntu as well.

Now, for Minecraft what I did was create a symbolic link between ~/.minecraft/saves and /media/blah/Users/badp/AppData/Roaming/.minecraft/saves, so that both installs share levels.

How can I do the same with SpaceChem?

@dawmail333 Accepting your own answer is both a tedious process (gotta wait two days) and a purely cosmetical one – badp Aug 31 '12 at 10:04
Maybe so, but it helps keep the site tidy, and is great for anyone else who drops in, particularly if they're unfamiliar with this site. – Liam Dawson Aug 31 '12 at 14:06

The folders that need linking are: (for Windows)

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Zachtronics Industries\SpaceChem

...and: (for Linux and OS X)

~/.local/share/Zachtronics Industries/SpaceChem

Would you happen to know where the Mac folder is, too? – fbrereto Oct 14 '11 at 19:49
@fbrereto I'd be surprised if it wasn't the same path as Linux, given that it's a Mono app. – badp Oct 14 '11 at 20:51
badp: you are correct; the path is the same on the Mac. Thanks! – fbrereto Oct 14 '11 at 20:53
