On Windows, it is different: the wildcard is not expanded by the shell but after the application starts, by which time the file "c" exists.

There is a very similar case in which a wildcard is impled but not specified on the command line; this will behave the same on both platforms:

$ touch a b
$ ls > c
$ cat c
