"Macs can work with, yes, everything", an article\ that takes the position that the the long-held belief that Macs can't network with Windows PCs and applications ius just wrong. The article demonstrates that Macs can handle all common file formats, specifically MS Word, MS Excel, PDF's and MP3 files.

"By "all my files," Windows users think they're referring to programs, but what they really mean is all their documents. Mac programs handle Windows documents just fine. MP3 files? Use iTunes. Documents? Microsoft Word for OS X. Videos? QuickTime player or iMovie. Excel spreadsheets? Microsoft Excel 2004. Quicken files? Quicken for OS X. PDFs? Preview is designed for PDF viewing."

The author's postion on networking: "Windows users who ask that question don't realize that Macs network with Windows PCs better than Windows PCs network with Windows PCs".
