Any file you make on a PC can be read on a Mac. I thought the days of people thinking you cant read any files from a PC on a Mac were gone!

Now you canr run an application built for Windows on a Mac with OS X, some linuc apps for PC will work on a Mac, but most of the time have to be compiled again. Linux will do that for you if you know what your doing though.

Bottom line is this: If you write a report using Microsoft word 2004 on a Mac, take it to class and turn it in on disk or have professors like I did that want it mailed to them and he/she opens it on a Windows version of Word XP it will open just fine and look just the same there as on your machine.
