    I just tried this and it saves the annotations with the file in regular PDF format. I can't test whether they can be opened on Windows though. You could install Okular on Windows to get around that though.

    Sorry I mixed Okular with Xournal. Okular saves to .pdf format but doesn't work OK with annotations.
    When I try to highlight one column of text (article is written in two columns) both columns were highlighted. After file reopening annotations disappeared.

    FYI:

    Last year I emailed FoxIt to see if a 64 bit version would ever be available. They replied that FoxIt Reader's version for Linux isn't under development any longer, so the April '09 release is the last. No 64 bit version. It is a nice basic reader, but the Linux version doesn't have a lot of the features the Windows version has. Probably comparable to Evince. The .deb file is still available on their downloads page.

    Thanks a lot ilkos!! I tried with the Foxit 4.3.1 in http://www.oldapps.com/foxit_reader.php under Wine and it works in Natty. I can finally save annotations and bookmarks in the PDFs. Big time.
    PS. Latest Foxit (5...) does not work BTW.

    You fail to understand because you don't read.

    It has been mentioned several times, that the WINDOWS version of the software FOXIT, allows the user to ANNOTATE.

    Does ANY PDF reader available for linux do that?

    Now do you understand?
