You are correct. You cannot run this binaries on non-Linux systems. 
Then, I see that there are project about running the condor-pool inside a
cluster of virtualmachine. I was wondering how this is efficient and
Modern virtual machine technology is impressive. The performance is somewhat VM-technology and application specific, but it's rarely an awful way to run computations these days. The biggest hit you'll take with this approach is the movement of the VM -- these VM files can get big if you're not careful with how you architect your job and your VMs.
