Yes, that's how I have it.

That works, but I've observed that each time I save any customization,
my custom file is regenerated with _all_ the customization loaded at
that time, and the platform-specific stuff that I removed from my
custom file is then reinserted.  Therefore, in my init file I must put
the platform-specific customization _after_ the loading of the custom

  (setq custom-file "my-custom-file.el")
  (load custom-file)
  (if (eq system-type 'windows-nt)
      (custom-set-faces <windows-specific stuff>)
    (custom-set-faces <ubuntu-specific stuff>)

Thank you so much for your help.
