Re: "PC" in contrast with "Mac"

I've been on Mac at home ever since my Mac plus back in the 1980s.

Most places I've worked were PC/Windows. I actually worked at one place that was Unix/Solaris.

However, I never had a serious difficulty transferring data between work and home or vice versa when I needed it. In the early days you needed to resort to a trick or two but even that is no longer necessary nowadays. This incompatibility thing is overstated IMHO.

I'm also part of a publishing setup which is a mix between a hobby and a second job, and for that Mac has clear advantages which is why I've never seriously considered switching to anything else. Most authors who write for us do so on Windows and I never received a file I wasn't able to use as intended - and some of them use very curious editors. It's not all 100% MS Word out there.
