Latest TrueCrypt (5.0, released only last week - see http://truecrypt.org)
supports Linux, OS X and Windows, with whole disk encryption for the latter.

I particularly like this 'feature':

*Q: Will TrueCrypt be open-source and free forever?*

A: Yes, it will. We will never create a commercial version of TrueCrypt, as
we believe in open-source and free security software.
