In the past most students and businesses always used a PC with Microsoft Windows as the operating system.  On the other hand art designers, system engineers, and publishing companies turned to Macintosh for performing tasks that required working with graphics, engineering schematics and newspaper publishing.

Cool Tip: Today the two platforms, Microsoft Windows and Macintosh, are both used across the full spectrum of applications.  Software application program incompatibility is practically non-existent.  The gap between the two platforms has narrowed significantly; today a student can perform his work on either with built-in user friendliness and software compatibility.
