I could imagine you might also want to be able to debug a core file from a non-Windows host on a Windows host.  So core-file/windows could end up being confusing/misleading in the long run.

Are the "mini dumps" you're referring to that can be created on a Mac or Linux host the same file format?  I think we need some way to capture the distinction between the two file formats.  All of the different formats have one thing in common though.  They support *postmortem* debugging.  So maybe it could be:



I don't think having it be called "windows" precludes being able to use the functionality on non-windows hosts (provided we ever write a library that can process them on non-Windows), I just can't think of a better way to describe the format itself.
